Professional biography

I am a Black-British Postgraduate Researcher and a Grand Union Scholar in the School of Psychology and Counselling. Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ERSC) of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). Prior to starting my PhD, I worked in the NHS as a registered cross-speciality Clinical Research Practitioner. I also worked as a Research Assistant on the Open Societal Challenge (OSC) funded project ‘BUSSIN’. I obtained my undergraduate degree, BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology from Nottingham Trent University in 2020.

Research interests

My research explores the psychological experiences of the Black birthing community within the UK using an interdisciplinary (multiple schools of knowledge) lens including but not exclusive to, decolonial and anti-racist psychology, critical race psychology, critical feminism, organisational psychology, global health, sociology, gender studies, life sciences.

I am interested in research that is focused on making a change in society by challenging current systems and structure in place that are hindering the progression of society.
