Amy Bendall obtained an MSc in applied psychology from The University of Wales Trinity Saint David in 2021. She is an early-career researcher, whose specific interests are embedded within both health and social psychology. She has previously collaboratively explored the psychological underpinnings of pro-environmental behaviours, personally focusing on how engagement with social media is related to attitudes surrounding recycling, “green” travel, organic food consumption and energy usage. During the recent global crisis, Amy took the opportunity to develop and deliver a quantitative research study, investigating the predictive power of political ideologies towards adherence to COVID-19 health interventions. Currently, Amy is involved in a number of ongoing research projects within PERCH, with her main focus being a longitudinal study which will evaluate the efficacy of UWTSD’s upcoming widening access initiatives. Amy is passionate about furthering psychological understandings of wellbeing and good practice at work, and is looking forward to seeing how the expanding literature base could lead us into a better future.
