BSc, MSc, DPhil
Postdoctoral Researcher & Project Manager
I am a Postdoctoral Researcher and Project Manager of the OxWell Student Survey in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry group, working with Professor Mina Fazel. We are currently preparing for OxWell 2023, a large school-based survey on child and adolescent mental health and wellbeing. In addition to managing this project, I am particularly interested in the relationship between immigration status and well-being and access to mental health services.
I completed my DPhil in Psychiatry at the Department in 2020, where I worked on understanding the clinical, behavioural, cognitive, and neural underpinnings of mood instability through the COMET (Cognition and Mood Evolution across Time) study (part of the Collaborative Oxford Network for Bipolar Research to Improve Outcomes (CONBRIO)) with Professor Catherine Harmer and Professor Kia Nobre. I received a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from UCL, and completed an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience from UCL’s Institute of Neurology. Prior to this role, I was also a Postdoctoral Associate at the Mood Disorders Research Program with Dr Hilary Blumberg at Yale University.
