Research Fellow, University of Leeds

I completed a BSc in Psychology in 2003 before working for 8 years in Local Authority policy and research roles. I returned to academia in 2011 to join the E-Futures Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Sheffield and complete a PhD in lighting and visual psychology, which I was awarded in February 2016. I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Lighting Research Group at Sheffield University for three years, and am now a Research Fellow at the Institute for Transport Studies at Leeds University.
