Following a MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology at the London School of Economics, I completed my PhD on the dynamics of gender and Muslim identity at the University of Copenhagen in 2016. I subsequently worked as a post-doc at the School of Education, Aarhus University, on constructions of Deaf identity. I joined the Department of Psychology at Westminster in 2017.
I supervise projects at different levels and teach on various modules for the BSc and MSc courses in Psychology. I am module leader for the MSc module on qualitative research methods.
My field is social psychology and my research explores the relationship between identity, culture and agency, with a focus on threatened or marginalised groups. I am interested in the critical use of social identity theory and social representations theory to explore how members of minority groups manage threat and construct identity. Most recently, I have used these theoretical constructs to explore the content and developmental context of Deaf cultural identity.
