Research Assistant

Research Group: Centre for Research on Eating Disorders at Oxford (CREDO)

Research Group: U-Flourish Student Wellbeing Research


I am contributing to the development of evidence-based treatments for those with eating disorders. This includes developing a digital (website and mobile application) treatment for Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder, which has been derived from enhanced cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT-E). This direct-to-public treatment aims to reduce barriers and increase treatment uptake and completion rates. I am also investigating the potential uses of virtual reality in the assessment and treatment of eating disorders.

Additionally, I am part of the U-Flourish research group, which aims to better understand the determinants of student wellbeing and academic success, and to evaluate the mental health support needs of undergraduate students. We are conducting a survey of all first undergraduates at Oxford. This will allow us to collect information to develop evidence-informed resources and services.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Bristol and my master’s degree in Forensic Psychology at King’s College London. Before joining CREDO, I worked in various clinical and research settings, including primary care, a forensic psychiatric unit and a specialist military research department. I have a general interest in developing evidence-based clinical treatments, particularly for those with severe and enduring mental illness.
