I began my studies at the University of Sheffield in 2013 and graduated with a BSc in Psychology. I then completed an MSc in Health Psychology at Aston University, from which I graduated with a Distinction. My dissertation investigated the role of a text-message intervention to reduce alcohol consumption in middle aged adults.

After completing my masters Degree, I worked at the University of Cambridge in the Behaviour and Health Research Unit (BHRU).
