Siân was a Research Associate on the ESRC Humour and Bullying Project. 

Prior to starting work at Keele University, Siân completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Exeter (2006), a Masters degree in Social Science Research Methods at Cardiff University (2007), and a PhD in Psychology at Cardiff University (2011). You can access Sian’s CV here.

Siân’s PhD research, supervised by Antony Manstead (Cardiff University) and Andrew Livingstone (University of Stirling) concerned how school bullying may be explained at a group level, and in its social context. More specifically, she looked at  how children’s perceptions of school bullying scenarios change, depending on whether they share group membership with either the perpetrator or the target of such bullying. She also investigated how the experience of group-based emotions, such as guilt or shame, affects children’s appraisals of bullying, and their subsequent desire to act in bullying situations. You can read more about her research by accessing articles in the Publications list below.

Alongside current research, Siân is working on a project investigating collective action against bullying, in Beatbullying’s online march (November, 2010). This aims to show how emotions such as anger, and a sense of injustice, can motivate groups to take action against those who perpetrate bullying.

Siân is delighted to be a part of the ESRC Bullying and Humour Project, to work with young people in schools, and to uncover more of the social psychology of bullying.
