BSc, MSc, MBPsS
Research Assistant & DPhil (Oxon) Candidate
I am interested in preventative mechanisms for disease using life course approaches. So far I have focused on optimising child development using language impairment, neurodevelopment disorders and nutritional deficiency as exemplar health outcomes. My methodological expertise spans qualitative data collection and analyses, intervention development, feasibility testing and randomised controlled trials.
I am currently funded by the NIHR CLAHRC Oxford on the Primary Care Shopping Internvetion for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention (PC-SHOP) study, with Dr Carmen Piernas, Prof. Paul Aveyard and Prof. Susan Jebb. I also hold the Medical Sciences doctorate scholarship awarded to the highest ranked students across the division.
Prior to joining Oxford I worked across the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health and Whittington Health NHS Trust, London. In 2015 I received two scholarships to study the MSc Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences programme at King's College London, and was awarded the Sackler Institute Award for highest overall mark. I graduated from the BSc Psychology and Language Sciences programme at University College London in 2015. My BSc research won first prize at the Faculty of Brain Sciences annual undergraduate conference.
