Amy McCall

BA (Oxon)

DPhil Candidate

I’m an MRC-funded DPhil student in Psychiatry investigating panic disorder in adolescents. I’m supervised by Polly Waite and Felicity Waite, and based between the departments of Experimental Psychology and Psychiatry. 

In short, my project aims to improve the understanding and measurement of panic attacks and panic disorder in young people (aged 13 - 15). To do this, I am exploring the biopsychosocial mechanisms underpinning the development and maintenance of the disorder. I have formed a Young People's Advisory Group made up of adolescents with lived experience of panic who advise on my research. I'm interested in network analysis methods, measurement development, and codesign methods. 

Before beginning my doctoral research I worked as a Research Assistant and Administrator in the TOPIC and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry research groups based in Oxford. I have also worked with the Human Computer Interaction group in Kings College London's Department of Informatics. Prior to this I graduated from Magdalen College, Oxford with a First Class BA in Experimental Psychology.
