I am a social psychologist exploring the barriers to advantaged group members’ participation in action for social change. I am interested in examining how psychological needs (morality, identity) and emotions (e.g., guilt) shape people’s engagement (or disengagement) in action to address inequality. My research has recently explored strategies to engage men in efforts to address sexual violence against women. I am in the final year of my PhD (submission anticipated early 2022) within the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work. I also work as a Research Associate in the Centre for Crime Policy and Research in the College of Business, Government and Law.
