Research interests

My primary research interest, and the focus of my PhD, is on the nature and development of hope. Using a social psychological approach, I am investigating what factors and circumstances engender and maintain hope, and what influence hope has on psychological (e.g., mood, depression) and behavioural (e.g., motivation, persistence) outcomes.
