Personal profile


PhD researcher at the School of Psychology, Ulster University. My research interests are within attachment theory, particularly in adulthood. I am interested in the application of the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI) and how this can inform research and clinical practice. I am currently investigating attachment in care-experienced and adopted adults, using qualitative analysis alongside the AAI analysis and reflective functioning.

I am actively involved in PsyPAG where I am the information officer and Northern Ireland Branch representative. Additionally, I am the postgraduate representative for the Northern Ireland branch of the British Psychological Society.
