Personal profile

Research interests

I am a doctoral research who is interested relationality in the context of mental health. My current research project explores intimate relationships, sexuality and desire in early psychosis and recovery. This is a qualitative, interdisciplinary project situated within psychology, sociology and social policy. I am informed by a hermeneutic phenommenological approach and utilise creative methodologies, aiming to improve understandings of what it's like to live with mental health conditions. 

I am also particularly interested in decolonisation, both in terms decolonising education as well as in relation to my research around sexuality and mental health.
