Dr Tara Marshall
Senior Lecturer


I received my BA in Psychology from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, in 1998. I then went on to complete my MA and PhD at the University of Toronto, where my dissertation research focused on cultural variation in romantic relationships. After graduating, I conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Tokyo and at the University of Western Ontario, where I further pursued my interests in cross-cultural psychology and in attachment styles in romantic relationships. I joined the Psychology Department at Brunel University London as a Lecturer in January 2009.
