Kimberley Bishop Grosseteste University in September 2022 as a Lecturer in Psychology. Previously, she has been working to complete her PhD at Lancaster University and working as an Assistant Dean, where she also completed her BSc in Psychology (2017) and MSc in the Psychology of Advertising (2018).
Kimberley's PhD research (submission March 2023) is an analysis of infant joint attention within the triadic interaction framework, which is funded by a Leverhulme Trust linked scholarship from the Lancaster University Department of Psychology. She is examining the differences within these interactions as a result of touchscreen tablets or traditional toys being the object of attention. Modern literature on screen time fails to account for the increasingly early ages at which infants are accessing screen media, and new contributions from sustained attention research challenge our understanding of joint attention.
Currently Kimberley teach on Foundations in Health and Clinical Skills, Social and Lifespan Psychology, Psychology of the Arts in Communities, and Psychological Skills in Professional and Academic Practice. She is also support first year psychology students as year tutor.
