Supervises Undergraduate research projects on the Psychology and Psychology with Clinical and Health Psychology streams and my research projects are primarily focussed on perception and judgements of social cues and how individual difference variables, including clinically relevant variables, may impact on our ability to interpret social cues. 


Thandi moved to Wales in 2006 after completing her BSocSci at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. After a stint working at the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning in Cardiff, she decided to carry on studying and moved to Bangor to complete an MSc in Foundations of Clinical Psychology, in 2008. She stayed in Bangor to complete her PhD, and having thoroughly enjoying the teaching opportunities offered during her PhD, Thandi became a Lecturer on the Teaching Team in 2012.
