I am a Psychology Senior Lecturer at Bucks New University and current Course Co-Leader of the MSc Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) programme. My research focus is on flow experience and creativity and arts integration into education (STEAM) and healthcare. Other areas of interest include: positive psychology, altered/exceptional states, meditation & mindfulness, arts therapy, tolerance of ambiguity, design cognition, emotion, empathy, motivation, and attention.
I am a member of the Higher Education Academy (Fellow), the European Flow Researchers Network, the American Psychological Association’s Division 10 (Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts), the UK Creativity Researchers, and Buckinghamshire New University’s newly-founded Centre for Positive Psychology. I am also a semi-professional artist.
