PhD


Postdoctoral Researcher

  • Coordinator for the Informatics and Digital Health theme at Oxford Health's NIHR Biomedical Research Centre

I am a postdoctoral researcher with the Informatics Team in the Translational Neuroscience and Dementia research group. I am also a research coordinator for the Informatics and Digital Health theme at Oxford Health's NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, working with a team led by NIHR Professor Andrea Cipriani, with Mike Denis, Kate Saunders and Alejo Nevado-Holgado.

Before I joined the Department of Psychiatry, my PhD research (Tilburg University, The Netherlands) and previous postdoctoral research (Department of Experimental Psychology, Oxford) focused on the neural mechanisms of cognitive control and its implications for individual differences, learning and human factors. My research methods included electrophysiological data (ERPs and spectral analysis), cognitive training, non-invasive electrical stimulation (tES) and intelligence testing.

Now, as a postdoc working on MRC Mental Health Data Pathfinder projects, my current research aims to gain insight into risk and protective factors underlying mood and mental health trajectories in adults and adolescents. These studies involve analysis of high-dimensional research data sets that are enriched by digital phenotyping and/or linkage of de-identified real-world data, tying in with the goals of the Informatics and Digital Health theme at Oxford Health's NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.

If you are based at the University of Oxford or Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and your research ideas fit with the goals of the Informatics and Digital Health theme, I would be happy to hear from you.
