I began my studies at the University of Sheffield in September 2019. Prior to this, I studied BA(Hons) Criminology and went on to receive an MSc in Forensic Mental Health from Nottingham Trent University.

Alongside my studies I was involved in a few research projects as an undergraduate research assistant, including looking at trauma informed care with domestic violence survivors, and the use of participatory action research in a local rehabilitative service.

I am currently employed as a support worker for a local charitable organisation, providing support to homeless and vulnerable adults in Nottingham, and have done this for nearly two years.
