Emily has a research interest in applied mental health, particularly in the areas of trauma, internalising disorders (such as anxiety or depression) and emotional regulation.
Emily joins Megan Reynold’s supervisory team. Megan’s research is centred on investigating and understanding unwanted sexual experiences during university. This project aligns itself with Emily’s research expertise working with individuals who have experienced trauma, as well as Emily’s experience conducting studies utilizing both online based survey methods and qualitative approaches to data collection. Emily supports Megan’s Studentship by providing guidance in the areas of research methods and analytic approaches, securing ethical approval, project administration, data collection support and mentoring.
“The Assistant Supervisor scheme has been an invaluable experience for me. I am still at the very early stages of my academic career, and it has offered a pathway for me to learn new skills and hone existing skills which will better prepare me for the next steps in my academic journey. I also thoroughly enjoy the experience of being able to support our PhD cohort in STARC in this way and to be able to pass on everything I have learnt to them throughout my academic journey so far.”
