Miriam Kirkham

BSc (Hons), MSc


Research Assistant

I am a research assistant in the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis team, primarily working on the THRIVE trial.

THRIVE is an innovative randomised controlled trial recruiting across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes. The aim is to assess whether virtual reality therapy can help people with persecutory delusions feel safer, by comparing an automated VR cognitive therapy with VR mental relaxation.

My research interests centre around the development of effective and accessible psychological therapies for people experiencing psychosis. I am interested in how digital technology can be used to increase the availability of evidence-based treatments in NHS services. 

Previously, I completed my BSc in Psychology at the University of Birmingham, and MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences at University College London.
