Critical Psychologies Scholarship

I am an avid writer and research associate at the University of Johannesburg. I write about things taking place in my society from critical psychologies perspectives. My writing and research is concerned with pressing social issues, such as migration, climate change, environmental justice and decoloniality.

I was a recipient of prestigious South African Medical Research Council’s Bongani Mayosi Scholarship for my doctorate in psychology at Nelson Mandela University. I completed my PhD in 2021 and have published these findings in peer-reviewed special issues, journals, and have forthcoming book chapters, including in the International Handbook of Community Psychology.

I am in the process of proposing new projects focused on the communities in resistance to climate and environmental injustices drawing on critical psychologies and decoloniality. Notably, I am co-editing a special issue for Psychology in Society (PINS) called: Climate Change, Environment and Psychology: Foregrounding Justice with Prof Brendon Barnes and Lynn Hendricks. Additionally, California Institute of Integral Studies Professor Craig Chalquist and I are working on a co-edited book on the terrapsychology (the psychology of place). I am also part of the editorial team for the Climate Psychology Alliance’s forthcoming Explorations in Climate Psychology Journal.

I have also guest lectured on ethics, (eco)psychosocial accompaniment and environmental justice for local and international academic institutions.

I am always open to research collaborations.
