I am Simone Peters, a recent PhD graduate in the Psychology faculty. I love challenging my thinking and exploring new ways of producing knowledges. I love learning about new cultures, different disciplines and different ways of doing research.

In my spare time I love playing and coaching netball, babysitting my adorable nephew and adventuring South Africa with my family.


Academic Interests and Current Research Projects

Interested in black masculinities, intersectionality (how race, gender, class and other identities intersect to influence lived experiences), Photovoice, narrative and other decolonial methodologies.

I am currently involved with the First 1000 days of Life Project
