I am a Research Assistant in the O-CAP team working mainly on the THRIVE and GameChange trials.
THRIVE is a randomised controlled trial, assessing whether virtual reality can help people with persecutory delusions feel safer. GameChange is a randomised controlled trial aimed to transform the lives of patients with psychosis, by providing psychological therapies through immersive virtual reality to help ease anxiety. This project involves collaborations with the Royal College of Arts, the McPin Foundation, NIHR, MindTech, OxfordVR, and multiple universities across the UK. These are both multi-site trials across Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Northamptonshire NHS trusts.
I completed my BA Neuroscience degree at the University of Oxford, and my MSc in Psychology of Mental Health at the University of Edinburgh.
