My research project
The role of illness-related rumination in psychological and physical health outcomes in those living with cancer
I am in my first year of my PhD research at the University of Surrey. I am interested in perseverative cognition, particularly rumination, within a physical health context. I plan to use quantitative methods to explore the association between rumination and health outcomes after a diagnosis of cancer and after surgery. Alongside my PhD research, I am also working toward the Stage 2 Qualification in Health Psychology.
I am currently working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the School of Psychology. I have assisted in workshops on the undergraduate statistics and critical thinking modules.
I am also a guest lecturer on the Health Psychology MSc course where I have lectured on the topic entitled "Recovery after Surgery".
I am currently undertaking the Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching, due to complete in July 2021.
