Biography

I joined the University of Huddersfield in 2004 as a Senior Lecturer in Psychology, after lecturing in Further Education, I previously worked for Barnsley College and Huddersfield Technical College, I am currently undertaking a PhD which aims to develop our understanding of women who define their sexuality as ‘bisexual’. More specifically my research aims to:

  1. Explore the ways in which bisexual women narrate their identity in the 21st Century.
  2. Explore the extent to which bisexual women experience ‘biphobia’ or discrimination.
  3. Explore how identifying as a bisexual woman impacts on her lived experience.

I am looking also at how women maintain their bisexual identity when engaged in a monogamous relationship. I am happy to supervise general social psychological projects as well as the area outlined above.
