Maddi Pownall

Hi, my name is Maddi Pownall and I am a PhD student at the University of Leeds. My research mainly focuses on women’s navigation of bodily changes and how this may impact performance in stereotyped domains. I’m also interested in research that looks critically at higher education, student engagement, and theories of teaching and learning.

I was the 2017-18 Chair of the BPS Student Committee. I’m really keen to continue bridging the gap between undergrad and postgraduate life. I’m very new to postgraduate life and so hope to share some of my insights from my time on the student committee with PsyPag. I’m especially looking forward to chatting to undergraduates thinking about their next steps at the various student events throughout the year.
