PhD Researcher in Psychology (ESRC 1+3)
Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol
Start date: September 2014
Graduation date: January 2019
Research topic: The role of genes and environment in adolescent wellbeing
My research investigates the genetic and environmental influences that can help us explain why some adolescents experience higher levels of wellbeing than others. I am also interested in predictors of wellbeing throughout the lifecourse. My ESRC PhD studentship is in collaboration with the Department of Health, with the hope that my research will have direct implications on policy recommendations, and help to bridge the gap between research and policy making.
