Research Interests

Anna's research interest is in understanding the interaction between macro and micro structures and their impact on violence / conflict and peaceful relations. This key focus incorporates a transdisciplinary interest on the impact of environment and social structure on emotion and behaviour.

Interests: violence, aggression, non-violence, connection across difference, marginalisation, emotion, shame


Anna began her PhD at CTPSR in 2021 with a BA(hons) in health and social welfare, an MSc in Development Management and an MSc in Mindfulness and Compassion. She has spent over 25 years working with a diverse range of vulnerable people in social care settings, specialising in advocacy, behaviour and conflict, trauma, and training/facilitation. Her research started with a study of factors that influence the ability of practitioners to put conflict transformation training into practice. After completing a systematic review of the impact of mindfulness-based interventions on violence and aggression, Anna began to work as research assistant on a number of projects alongside working on her PhD.

Underlying all of Anna's work is a desire to challenge structural inequalities, and to gain more understanding on how these inequalities impact people and societies.
