DPhil Candidate | Postdoctoral Research Scientist
I am a DPhil Candidate at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences and a Postdoctoral Researcher in behavioural science at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences.
I am interested in behavioural interventions to address disorders and disease. I have focused on left-behind groups including people with mental illness and ethnic minorities. My expertise spans intervention development, qualitative methods and feasibility testing.
During my doctoral research, I developed a weight management intervention for people with serious mental illness. My postdoctoral research aims to develop an intervention for people with circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders. I serve as a Junior Dean at Brasenose College, Oxford.
I am a registered psychologist and hold a BSc Psychology and Language Sciences from UCL and a MSc Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London. In 2016, I returned to UCL at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health. In 2018, I joined Oxford.
