Research

My research focuses on social psychological aspects of behaviour, and how this is influenced by personality, group dynamics and interpersonal relationships. My PhD focused explicitly on the influence of narcissism on team dynamics (e.g., team cohesion, team conflict) and organisational outcomes (e.g., team performance), and utilised a variety of methodological approaches (e.g., longitudinal hierarchical modelling, round-robin data analyses, mediation).

Since joining Bournemouth University I have worked with colleagues from various departments to conduct research on problematic gambling and how this can be addressed with the help of technology to detect, predict, prevent, and intervene with harmful gambling behaviours. This work has involved a range of methodological approaches (e.g., eye-tracking, longitudinal design, RCT) and has been presented to Parliament. I also conduct research looking at marginalised communities and gambling (i.e., LGBTQ+ and gambling), and promoting suicide prevention and postvention within healthcare settings.
