Research Assistant

I'm a research assistant at the Psychopharmacology and Emotion Research Lab (PERL). Currently I'm working on the PROGRESS Study, which aims to investigate the efficacy of the drug Prucalopride in targeting cognitive difficulties that remain in those recovered from depression. I am also involved in the CABIN Study, which examines if changes in affective learning after taking antidepressants are environment dependent in individuals with current low mood. This entails comparing the effects of antidepressants alone and when taken in combination with behavioural activation therapy. I am passionate about mental health and issues of race equality and diversity. 

Prior to my role at PERL, I completed a BSocSci (Hons) in Psychology at the National University of Singapore. Following that, I completed a MSc in Psychiatric Research at King's College London.
