I completed my bachelor’s degree in Psychology at University College London. I am currently an MSc student on the Psychological Research course at Oxford University. My one-year research project is based in the Psychopharmacology and Emotion Research Laboratory (PERL), supervised by Professor Catherine Harmer.
I am particularly curious about the complexity of factors attributed to mental disorders and the efficacy of treatments for mental disorders. My MSc research project explores the effect of citalopram (an SSRI antidepressant drug) on altering biased emotional processing in healthy individuals with high/low neurotic traits. The research examines both the short- and long-term effects of citalopram, and utilises both behavioural and neuroimaging measures of emotional processing.
