At the Psychopharmacology and Emotion Research Laboratory, I am currently working on a project aiming to innovate treatments and assessments for adolescents with depression. We will be forming advisory groups of adolescents and using their insights to redesign current measures of depression to have greater relevance and accuracy for their age range. I had studied for an undergraduate degree in neuroscience at UCL, before completing a research masters with a greater focus on personality disorders at Yale University. I have always been interested in people’s experience with mental health and the way the brain works, therefore my previous role was a criminal justice recovery caseworker at a mental health charity for women in prisons.
