Hi, I’m Jennifer (Jen), and I’m a PhD student at the University of Suffolk, where I use experimental methods to explore human attraction patterns, looking at the impacts of sex, sexual orientation and hormones from a biological and evolutionary perspective. I am a member of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society.
I completed my Psychology and Criminology degree (BSc Hons) at the University of Suffolk (then known as University Campus Suffolk). I moved straight onto my conversion Masters in Psychology to gain eligibility for BPS at the University of Suffolk. I started my PhD in 2015 on a part-time basis. Alongside my PhD Research, I work as the Psychology Technician at the University of Suffolk where I run the psychology labs, teach years 1 and 2 (Research Methods and Statistics) as well as supervising several year 3 research projects.
I’m passionate about ensuring people have their best possible experience of postgraduate Psychology. As the East of England representative, I am keen to support students to access a range of opportunities, including networking, funding and awards available to them. I am very keen to try and promote a connected and inspired community of postgraduate psychologists across the region as well as the country. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any ideas, questions or issues. You can email me at Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
