Jessica Armitage

PhD Candidate of Psychology, University of Bristol

Using methods from epidemiology, psychology, behavioural genetics and statistical genetics, my research explores why some are more resilient than others when presented with life’s stresses and strains, and the role that genetic and environmental factors play. My research has focused predominantly on resilience in early adulthood following experiences of bullying in adolescence. I am particularly interested in understanding how genetic and environmental influences may interact to shape mental health and wellbeing.
