I am a leading patient-led methodologist — I actively use my experiences of living with treatment-resistant depression and bipolar to inform my research. I am supported by the Rosamund Snow DPhil Fellowship which was inspired by the great and late Rosamund Snow who researched her own illness, type-1 diabetes. I am writing a paper 'what is patient-led methodology?' and have funding from the British Sociological Association to host a conference on this subject.

My DPhil investigates experiences of treatment-resistant depression to improve care pathways. My supervisors are Professor Sara Ryan, Professor Kamal Mahtani, and Dr. Charlotte Albury and I am based in the Medical Sociology and Health Experiences Research Group (MS&HERG). My background is medical sociology with a focus on mental health and qualitative methods. I have worked on other health related projects, including on women's health and LGBTQ+ identities.

I am a junior qualitative researcher in health behaviours working with Dr Dimitrios Koutoukidis on an RCT looking at the feasibility of weight-loss before bowel cancer surgery for people with overweight. I worked as an RA on a series of studies before this project including on ESRC diverse experiences of COVID HEXI project and the SLIM-CARD RCT.

I am the ECR Rep for the British Sociological Association Medical Sociology Group. I also blog for Mental Elf, an interdisciplinary Charity which reviews research articles on Mental Health with the aim to make this research more accessible.

I was the 2019 Ann McPherson Research Fellow. During my Fellowship, I worked and published projects on endometriosis, cohort studies, LGBTQ+ identities, and weight management. I also taught on the Oxford Qualitative Courses. I continue to support these sessions during my DPhil.

I occasionally teach in the Department of Experimental Psychology. In 2021-23, I taught and marked for the individual differences module. I have also supervised international students as part of the abnormal psychology OPUS programme.
