Bell is Senior Lecturer in psychology at Nottingham Trent University with specialties in social psychology, community psychology, and depth and liberation psychology. Her work explores the psychology of middle class bystanders who perpetuate social injustice through indifference. She is also concerned with social transformation, and sees this as the outcome of a psychological process of acting back against downpression. Bell is also working on a reggae opera as a piece of socially conscious art that could potentially catalyze social consciousness. She was a co-founder of Jamaicans for Justice, a citizens’ rights action group advocating for fundamental social change in Jamaica.
