I joined the University of Sheffield in 2023 and am a Research Associate on the Equitable Bereavement Care for All project. This is an inclusive, qualitative study to improve bereavement services for those from ethnically diverse groups. 

I am carrying out a part-time PhD at UCL exploring the implementation of psychosocial interventions for dementia.

I have previously held roles at UCL in the Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology.  I was Programme Manager of the MRC-funded 'CST-International' study, which explored implementation strategies for Cognitive Stimulation Therapy for dementia in Brazil, India and Tanzania, and lead researcher on the NIHR-funded project 'iSupport for South Asian dementia carers: cultural adaptation and feasibility testing'.
