Research Fellow, University of Bath

I am a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I completed my PhD in the area of deception in 2012 before working within various applied research roles across both the public and private sector. I have since returned to academia and my current research examines what makes people susceptible to malevolent forms of influence, such as scams and phishing e-mails, in both a work and home context. I currently collaborate with a number of organisations to conduct research and develop interventions to reduce individual susceptibility to such influence attempts.
