I joined the Clinical Trials Research Unit in July 2019 as a Research Assistant, having previously completed a BSc degree in Psychology at the University of Durham.

I am currently working on the MAGIC and ASTIClite studies. Prior to this, I worked as a Paediatric Research Assistant in the Clinical Research Facility at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. I also worked as a Research Assistant in the Psychology Department at the University of Durham. In this role I examined 4D ultrasound scans of foetuses at various gestation, focusing on self-touch and facial expressions in relation to prenatal depression, stress and anxiety.

Research interests
  • Mental health and psychological well-being (particularly in university student populations)
  • Suicide and self-harm prevention
  • Borderline personality disorder: treatment and intervention

Current projects

  1. ASTIClite (Autologous Stem cell Transplantation In refractory Crohn’s disease – Low Intensity Therapy Evaluation)
  2. MAGIC (Melatonin for Anxiety prior to General anaesthesia In Children)
