PhD Student, Lancaster University, and Research Associate, University of Bath
Olivia holds as BSc in Psychology from the University of Liverpool. Following this, she completed an MSc in Investigative and Forensic Psychology, also at the University of Liverpool, with a special focus on creativity and terrorism.
Liv’s research explores group interactions across a range of different contexts. Her CREST funded PhD, at Lancaster University, was centred on understanding how teams are able to work effectively in challenging and extreme environments. As part of this work, she has conducted research in applied and experimental settings, utilising a mixed methods approach to unpack factors that support teamwork under pressure.
In 2020, Liv was successful in gaining a Research Associate post at the University of Bath, exploring the role of digital traces in predicting offline behaviour as part of a CREST funded project. Specifically this project aims to model, predict and validate extreme right wing action by drawing on methods in computational science and social psychology.
