I work as part of the team producing teaching materials for the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship programme. My primary role is translating the vulnerability and public protection curriculum.
I have a PhD in environmental psychology, with a focus on wellbeing, and undertook a post-doctoral fellowship in the same subject area. Following this I worked for several years in the third sector, first as a partnerships manager in a hospice, and then as a senior manager in a homeless charity. I joined the Open University in 2017 and became a project manager for the Centre for Policing Research and Learning.
My research interests centre on wellbeing and intersectoral collaborations. I am currently undertaking a study on police wellbeing charities, and collaborating on a further two in the areas of first responder wellbeing and victim support. I have a particular interest in new materialism methodologies, and the creation of audio-visual materials for teaching and research impact.
