Centre for Family Research

 
 
My current MPhil research explores student mental health and family relationships in the social media age. My research is supervised by Professor Claire Hughes and funded by the ESRC, forming part of my ESRC 1+3 MPhil+PhD programme.
I joined the Centre for Family Research in September 2018 as a Research Assistant, working on a study of family relationships and adjustment in families formed using assisted reproductive technologies. Prior to this, I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at Newnham College, University of Cambridge. I graduated with first class honours in June 2018 and was awarded the British Psychological Society Undergraduate Award for graduating with the highest overall grade in the cohort. I also completed my undergraduate research dissertation at the CFR, looking at birth order effects in parental mind-mindedness during the transition to parenthood, for which I was awarded the Ruth Cohen dissertation prize.
