Biography

I completed my first degree at the University of Sussex, and my MSc and PhD at the University of Exeter. I have also studied and worked at the University of Amsterdam, the University of Abertay Dundee, and the Trust for the Study of Adolescence. I came back to Sussex in 1998, where I am currently Senior Lecturer in Social Psychology.

Role

I am convenor for the following modules: Psychology of Crowds and Collective Action; Social Research Methods in Psychology; Discourse Analysis for Psychology (mini-module). I am also the UCU rep for Psychology.

Community and Business

My work on mass emergency behaviour has been used by the emergency services, the Department of Health, and Birmingham Resilience. I convene a module on the Psychology of Crowd Safety Management for live event safety professionals at Bucks New University. I have also worked with government departments, arts and theatre groups, social media businesses and community organizations, including Public Health England, Fabrica Gallery, NixonMcInnes, Club Penguin, The Fusebox, Pure360, and the Bank of Ideas.
