Resumé and Publications

 

imageMy research has primarily been in the areas of social and educational psychology, with a specific focus on friendships in schools. My research has three key strands. The first strand concerns how peer group memberships and school ethos affect children’s responses to bullying. This research speaks to the role of bystanders at bullying incidents, including cyberbullying incidents.  A second strand of research concerns how children deploy humour in friendship groups, either to maintain or resist bullying. A third strand of research focuses on children who experience prejudice and concerns  how children’s imagined play, using Playmobil TM figures affects their responses to those who are discriminated against.
