I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a degree in Psychology. I then stayed on at Sheffield University, having gained an ESRC Postgraduate Studentship, to complete a PhD in social psychology on attributional reasoning about sexual violence. Upon completion, I joined the School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham as a lecturer before moving to the School of Psychology at the University of East London as senior lecturer and then principal lecturer.
