I am a researcher currently working across three different project streams within the Clinical Psychology Unit and am member of the PEARLS research lab. My research roles include using quantitative methods to evaluate psychotherapy in practice-based settings (such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)), predicting outcomes and developing psychotherapy feedback systems and improving mental health support for students.

Research interests

My primary research interests are focused around evaluating and predicting outcomes for psychological therapies. I have a particular interest in the use of quantitative methods including meta-analysis, single case experimental design, network analysis and predictive modelling using machine learning. I am also interested in student mental health and improving access and care for students in need of mental health support.
