Dr Clare Edge
Lecturer in Psychology
I am delighted to introduce myself as a Lecturer in Psychology at University of Salford. I have previously taught at Manchester Metropolitan University (2017) and University of Salford (2013-2018) across a number of Psychology and Public Health related areas at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. My professional background prior to starting my academic journey (2006-2013) was within the charity and voluntary sector. I have held a number of roles that primarily involved coordinating projects and campaigns on a national and regional basis. These range from mental ill health service evaluation projects to mentoring projects led by young people.
I hold a BSc Psychology, an MSc Community Psychology and a PhD, and I am a Member of the British Psychological Society. My doctoral research explored ageing in the workplace. This looked at health and wellbeing from a number of psychological and public health perspectives. I have a broad range of research interests, but the main topics I am interested in are anything related to Community, Health & Social Psychology.
