Currently undertaking a PhD focused on post-truth and misinformation within the context of asylum seekers and refugees under the supervision of Professor Deborah Turnbull (School of Psychology), Dr Rachel Searston (School of Psychology), and Professor Alexander Reilly (School of Law). While this research is primarily focused on the cognitive mechanisms through which we interpret information, and how these contribute to confusion around truth and facts, it also aims to provide further understanding on the broader societal, philosophical, and media-related context within which this confusion has arisen.
As part of this, my research is also focusing on constructive journalism, which utilises positive psychology techniques in the reporting of events, with an aim to encourage mental well-being; positive societal engagement; and restore trust in the journalistic process.
