I started a full-time PhD at PaCT Lab in October 2014. I previously completed a BSc (hons) in Psychology in 2013 and an MRes in Psychology in 2014 at Northumbria University.

My research interests include teenagers’ knowledge and beliefs of sexual health intervention programs. Furthermore, my research interests include risky behaviours specifically using technology, such as cyber bullying and sexting behaviours.

My PhD is exploring teenagers’ beliefs, knowledge and attitudes towards sexual health. This will then inform a sexual health intervention program aimed at reducing the amount of unplanned pregnancies and STIs in the teenage population.
