Extra-curricular research experience
Student UX Researcher at Giantwell (December 2013-June 2015)
Giantwell (a UK-based startup) develop smartphone applications for health and wellbeing. This project involved conducting qualitative interviews to understand attitudes towards self-management and mental health wellness apps
Psychology Researcher at Dr Jack Boyle & Associates (2012-2014).
Dr Jack Boyle is an Educational Psychologist and Expert Witness. This work involved providing reports on research conducted within fields of learning disabilities, PTSD, phobias, child development, child abuse, contact arrangements and immigration, as well as administrative work (e.g. communication with clinicians, solicitors and clients, records management and report preparation)
Vacation Scholarship Project: Education (June – August 2013)
Project funded by Carnegie Trust undertaken within honours year of Undergraduate degree. Supervised by Dr Steve Draper, University of Glasgow. The exploratory project investigated the relative roles and benefits of reading, writing and discussion in learning, within UK classrooms (Ages 7-18 in Scotland and England) and for Glasgow University students. The research involved designing, conducting and evaluating a mixed-methods study.
