Personal profile

Scholarly biography

Jenny is a Research Officer in the Centre for Learning & Teaching's (CLT) Student Academic Success & Partnership team, primarily working on the Changing Mindsets project. Changing Mindsets is an OfS-funded multi-partner project, informed by social-psychological and sociological theory and research, which aims to deliver institutional-level change that improves HE outcomes for under-represented students.

As well as her work in the CLT, Jenny teaches research methods in the School of Applied Social Science, where she also leads the R staff development workshops and supervises the PASS (Peer Assisted Support Sessions) scheme. 

Jenny joined the CLT in July 2017, having graduated with a first-class BA (Hons) Applied Psychology and Sociology degree from the School of Applied Social Science. During her BA, Jenny was awarded the University of Brighton’s Merit Scholarship in both her first and second year and won a BPS Undergraduate Research Assistantship during her second year. At graduation, Jenny was presented with the BPS Undergraduate Prize, the Hamilton-Cramp Prize, and a Governor’s Prize. She went on to complete an MRes in Psychological Methods at the University of Sussex on a Chancellor’s Master’s Scholarship. Jenny is due to graduate with a high distinction and the MRes Psychological Methods prize in January 2019.

Jenny was the first in her family to go to university and has a working-class background. She completed both her degrees as a mature student and single parent. She highlights these identities in the hope that it will help break down stereotypes surrounding them and as a step towards normalising their place in Higher Education.
