About me

PhD Supervisor: Professor Alex Gillespie

I am a 3rd year PhD student in the Psychological and Behavioural Science department at LSE. My research focuses on what makes high and low quality online dialogue and how to measure it. I use naturally occuring online dialogues datasets (e.g. conversations found on Reddit), and use a mixture of quantitative and qualitative methods to analyse their structure and content.

I currently work as a GTA for the MSc in Social Cultural Psychology, providing support to the relevant courses and facilitating student learning of key academic skills.
