Biography

I am a Professor of Organisational Psychology. I joined the AMBS faculty in January 2012 as a Lecturer, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2014 and to Chair in 2020. Prior to my time at Manchester, I did postdoctoral work at University of Sheffield. 

My research focuses on social relationships in the workplace, particularly how people influence the emotions of those around them and the 'darker' side of relationships (e.g., bullying, aggression). I have published in a range of organisational psychology, management, and social psychology journals, and co-edited two popular science books.

I currently hold Associate Editor roles at European Journal of Work and Organisational Psychology and Organizational Psychology Review, and serve on the Editorial Review Boards of Journal of ManagementJournal of Organizational Behavior, Human Relations, and Journal of Applied Social Psychology

Outside of work, my time is mainly spent parenting two small children and helping to renovate the dilapidated wreck my family and I like to call home!
