Personal profile


PhD at the School of Psychology, Ulster University. My research interests are within attachment theory, particularly in adulthood. I am currently investigating attachment in care-experienced and adopted adults, using reflexive thematic analysis alongside manualised AAI and reflective functioning analyses. I am a trained attachment coder in the Adult Attachment Interview, Reflective Functioning (AAI-RF) and the Strange Situation Procedure.
