Born in New York, but wanted to live in the UK since I was 7 so I did! I am a massive geek. Love threatre, dr. who, anime, my cats, DIY, and just generally keeping busy!
I’m an Evolutionary Psychologist. I research people as animals – specfically, I focus on sex differences, gender and attraction. Who wouldn’t find that interesting?!
I started out in New York where I went to my local state school. I was very active in the school shows, which naturally led into studying at the Conservatory of Threatre Arts and Film in New York. Then I was “politely asked to leave” so I did the next big thing that I always wanted to do – Move to England. So I did a year abroad at Lancaster University. Discovered Psychology. Went back to New York to Binghamton University where I finished my UG. Took a year out to work. Then back to the UK I flew – Exeter this time for my MSc, and then up to Dundee for my PhD.
High School Diploma – BA in Psychology – MSc in Social and Organisational Psychology – PhD in Psychology.
