Research topic

I am interested in a broad range of research areas such as psychological wellbeing, aspects of existential psychology eg purpose and meaning in life and autobiographical memory and the self. In addition to these broad areas,  I am also passionate about autism research which is part of the neurodiversity paradigm. My PHD research is about the autistic experience of nostalgia and how this relates to wellbeing in autism.
