Personal profile


I am a PhD Researcher in psychology, with a focus on forensic psychology and mental health. I completed my Bachelor's of Science (Hons) in Applied Psychology from the University of Leicester (June 2021) with a first. I also completed my Master's in Forensic Psychology at the University of Kent (September 2022). In September 2022, I started my role as a PhD Researcher at Ulster University.

I was born in America and moved to the UK in 2018 to pursue my passion for forensic psychology. My research and clinical focus is the rehabilitation of people who offend. I have experience working in a law enforcement agency as an assistant to the crime scene investigator and have gathered and analysed evidence for crime scenes. Additionally, I have several years of support work experience and have mentored children and adults with disabilities, behavioural difficulties, or substance misuse issues. This includes previous offenders whom I have assisted with finding better housing, employment and treatment programmes through CGL. I am currently undertaking a research project with Kent and Medway Partnership Trust on the racial abuse of staff members by patients in forensic inpatient wards.

My current independent project is an investigation of different prison statistics, judicial standards, and recidivism outcomes. Reach out if you want to know more.
