Senior Lecturer in Psychology
University of Greenwich



I am Visiting Fellow at the Department of Media and Communications at LSE and Senior Lecturer in Social Psychology at the University of Greenwich. I am a qualified child and youth worker (certified,1998), a psychologist (MSc, 2004; PhD, 2008) and social science researcher who has worked and taught at a number of institutions in the UK and internationally. In recent years I have collaborated with academics and professionals across disciplines and in cross-national networks employing my expertise in social psychology as well as statistical methods in the social sciences.

My current research has a general focus on social inequality and well-being. Since 2010, I have been involved with the cross-national network EU Kids Online based at the LSE. My research here mainly focuses around children's risks and opportunities on the internet with an emphasis on cyberbullying, multiple risk behaviours and disadvantaged groups. I have a particular interest in investigating the relationship between cyberbullying and social inequalities on the individual (e.g., vulnerable groups) as well as the societal level (e.g., income inequality, cultural values). Moreover, I am pursuing research rooted in my doctoral research, which has a focus on stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination, investigating the links between stereotyping and discrimination with bullying, mental health and well-being. Lastly, I am involved in health services research applying her expertise in quantitative methods. For this work I have been using data records provided by UK Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) as well as from South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM).
