DPhil Candidate & Junior Dean
I am interested in behavioural interventions for the management of disorders and disease. I have focused on childhood obesity, vitamin deficiency, and dyslipidaemia as exemplar health outcomes. My expertise spans qualitative methodology, feasibility testing, and randomised controlled trials.
My doctoral research aims to develop an intervention to manage obesity in people with serious mental illness. In 2019, I was awarded the Division of Medical Sciences doctoral scholarship. I also serve as a Junior Dean at Brasenose College, Oxford.
I trained in Psychology and Language at UCL. My research won first prize at the Faculty of Brain Sciences annual conference. In 2015, I received two scholarships to train in Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London. I later received the Sackler Institute Award for highest overall mark. In 2016, I returned to UCL at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health. In 2018, I joined Oxford.
