I’m a Psychology PhD student at the University of Liverpool. My research interests are in addiction and mental health problems, with my PhD focusing on alcohol use and co-morbid mental health problems in the UK police service.

I’m a recent graduate of the University of Liverpool, having studied my degree of Master of Psychological Sciences with Honours. My academic focus in my final year was on personal and interpersonal factors of mental health in asexual individuals, and my interests remain in sexuality and gender studies.
I am currently a first year student studying single honours Psychology. In my first year of college I had the opportunity to study Psychology and ever since then my education has revolved around this remarkable subject.
After my degree I hope to do further research in the Forensic area of…
…Psychology and complete a dissertation in the field of Forensics. My ultimate goal is to become a Forensic Psychologist. I know it’s going to be a long, demanding road ahead of me but pursuing a subject I enjoy makes it a worthwhile occupation. I am most interested in criminal behaviour and trying to develop a better understanding of why they have turned to crime and if there is anything we can do to help them. Writing blogs for Edge Hill University has given me more confidence in myself and has widened my understanding and enjoyment of Psychology.
I am lucky enough to be one of the first cohort to go into the University of Liverpool’s brand new Integrated Masters of Psychological Sciences specialising in Clinical and Health Psychology. I am immensely interested in the Psychology of Women, but more recently have start to look to multiple disciplines…
…to aid me in my understanding of the inner workings of the female psyche!
Whilst my research area is important to me and I continue to research, publish and lecture on the topic, I also have wider interests in how we educate our undergraduate population and the differences in our education compared to our European cousins. Over my time as an undergraduate, I have been lucky enough to study abroad at the University of Padua, Italy and have worked as a research assistant for six academics. I now find myself as Deputy Chair of The British Psychological Society Student Committee and Editor-at-Large of this wonderful website where hopefully you will see me post more pieces of social commentary over the coming months…
I am a second-year psychology student with a keen interest in clinical psychology. I fell in love with psychology when I chose to study it for my GCSEs, and it turned out to be the best decision I ever made. In my spare time, I volunteer with several charities to improve the mental health of others. In the future, I aspire to become a clinical psychologist and along the way develop my interests and learn as much as possible in the hope that I can help to make the world a better place for people experiencing mental illness.
I am a Postgraduate Researcher at the University of Liverpool interested in the influence of technological advancements on our behaviour. My PhD project aims to explore the impact of mobile technology on executive function and sleep quality. I enjoy good food, travelling and can usually be found with a book in one hand and a coffee in the other.

I believe in the amazing capacity for resiliency in human nature. Ben Okri once wrote that “the most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering,” and my life so far is perfectly reflected…
…by these words. I have been challenged with several hardships, and my steepest hills have been to overcome loss, and surviving and living with becoming chronically ill at an early age. I believe that these obstacles have strengthened me and guided my path to where I am today.
Beyond my passion for everything surrounding the study of psychology, I live for speaking up for those who feel unheard, and reaching out to those who, for whatever reason, cannot reach out for themselves. I wish to lift those who feel lonesome, and be brave for those who, for whatever reason, shy away from necessary confrontation.
I’m from Barnsley in South Yorkshire, so I’m quite a bit away from home. I’m currently a first year student studying single honours Psychology. Since year ten, I have been given the option to learn about Psychology and have done every year since, resulting in me to choose this degree…
…because it interests me a lot. I’m hoping to come out of university and be able to to go into further education in the clinical/health area of Psychology, however this could change by the third year!
Blogging is something I have experience with as it was in the criteria to do it in A-Level Media for two years and I really enjoyed it. I like to think of myself as easy-going but when I have something to complete, I have to finish it soon as possible otherwise I stress too much.
I am a mature final year Psychology student at the University of Liverpool. I enjoy everything within Psychology. When I’m not at lectures or studying I enjoy running PAL (Peer Assisted Learning) sessions for younger Psychology students and volunteering for a National Youth Organisation. My interests lie in Public Relations and Communications and cats.
As an undergraduate of Psychology at Liverpool Hope University, I am beginning to learn many of the causes and risk factors of the development of psychopathology. I have a keen interest in Forensic Psychology as my dream has been to work in the Police from a young age. Now, I…
…have grown, and believe that the prevention of crime begins with the detection of behaviour linked to crime in the early years. Studies in neurology have shown that deficits in certain areas of the brain can cause criminality or be linked to criminal behaviour. My hope is to continue my studies and complete a dissertation in the field of forensics.
I am in the final stages of my thesis at the University of Liverpool. I teach at both Edge Hill University and the University of Liverpool. My research explores serious violent offenders, with a particular interest in offender characteristics and previous convictions; I have investigated the differences in types of…
…violent offenders (including comparisons in gender), whilst also identifying levels of specialisation, or diversity, in the crimes they commit. My teaching includes undergraduate Psychology topics and the use of SPSS in statistics.
