Dr Ronni M. Greenwood is a Social-Community Psychologist and Lecturer in the Psychology Department at University of Limerick with broad interests in social and community psychology. Her research in the area of gender has focused on the intersectionality of social identities in relation to solidarity in diverse groups, experiences and expressions of social identity.
