I completed my first degrees in English Literature at Durham University, before working in the publishing industry for five years as a textbook editor. During this time, I studied for a BSc in Psychology with the Open University. I joined the Department of Experimental Psychology as a Research Assistant in 2015.

Graduate Research Assistant

I am interested in the application of psychological theory and methodology to improve the safety of physical and mental healthcare.

Currently, I am evaluating the impact of a framework to measure and monitor safety in healthcare. This framework is being tested by a number of NHS trusts nationally in an improvement programme funded by The Health Foundation.

I also work on the Mindlock Project at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, a project investigating the psychological mechanisms that underlie persistent risk of deliberate self-harm, and on The Oxford Grief Study, a large-scale study investigating factors that predict the development of prolonged grief.
