My research focuses on the influence of relational schemata of different attachment qualities on perceptions of attachment phenomena, at both information processing and behavioural levels.

I did my undergraduate degree in Applied Psychology at Cardiff University and stayed there to do a PhD. in social psychology with Dr. Kathy Carnelley. I was awarded a doctorate in January 2001 and joined the Department of Experimental Psychology in 1999.

I study the way that prior close relationship experiences (represented in attachment relational schemas) become activated by situational and environmental cues and function to guide behaviour, cognition and affect in new or potential new relationships.
