Hello! I am the PsyPAG representative for the Division for Academics, Researchers and Teachers in Psychology, also known as DART-P! I am really looking forward to representing the views of postgraduate students engaged in all aspects of teaching and research in psychology.
I am a part-time PhD student in Psychological Sciences part of the Institute of Health and Society at University of Worcester. My PhD research focuses on the development of children’s health literacy within an educational context, combining insights from both health and educational psychology. I also work as a full-time Research Assistant in Psychological Sciences and am Honorary Secretary for the BPS West Midlands Branch.
I completed a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology in 2008 and gained an MSc degree in Issues in Applied Psychology in 2010.
Please contact me if you would like to know more about DART-P or have any suggestions as to how the Division can continue to support postgraduate students, I would love to hear from you! The Division have their own publication, Psychology Teaching Review, which welcomes submissions from postgraduate students on all aspects of teaching and learning in psychology. It operates a positive peer review process which means it is the ideal place to submit first publications.
