Juliet's research interests lie within the domains of Social Identity Theory and Self Categorization Theory, and the implications of group membership for people's everyday lives. This includes intergroup / intragroup helping and help-seeking, the impact of groups on health and well-being, gender identity, national identity, and online identities.
Juliet completed her PhD in Social Psychology at the University of Dundee in 2011. Her PhD research concerned the act of help-seeking, and investigated whether group members may use help-seeking as a tool to manage and enhance their group's image in the eyes of others.
Juliet then spent four years as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Dundee, working on Professor Fabio Sani's ESRC-funded Health In Groups project (http://healthingroups.wixsite.com/healthingroups). This project investigated the relationships between membership of social groups (family, community, sports groups, etc.) and health.
Juliet joined Nottingham Trent University in August 2015 and is a Senior Lecturer in Social Psychology.
