Personal profile


Bethany Waterhouse-Bradley completed her PhD in Social Policy in 2012 at Ulster, University. Upon completion of her doctoral degree, Bethany worked in migration policy between Northern Ireland and Westminster. She returned to Ulster University to work with the Bamford Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing in 2015, before joining the Psychology Research Institute, and returning to the School of Applied Social and Policy Studies in 2018. She has a strong interest in interdisciplinary examination of social justice issues, and has worked with survivors of domestic violence, people experiencing homelessness, and those living with mental and physical ill health. Bethany seeks to generate work which reflects the lived experience of traditionally excluded groups, provides evidence to reduce institutional barriers to access, and create space for widening participation. She is particularly interested in the relationship between policy and emotion, and the impact of technological innovation on social inequalities.
