I am a DPhil student supervised by Professor Seena Fazel and Dr Amir Sariaslan in the Forensic Psychiatry research group. My doctoral project focuses on the development and validation of prognostic tools predicting outcomes in comorbid psychosis and substance use disorders.
Prior to my DPhil, I completed a BSc in Psychology at University College London (UCL), and an MSc by Research in Psychiatry at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Professor Seena Fazel. For my MSc, I investigated the adverse health events associated with antipsychotic use. Funded by the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre, I later worked as a Research Assistant at the Cognition, Schizophrenia & Imaging Laboratory at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) in King's College London. At the IoPPN, I used transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)-electroencephalography (EEG) to study GABA- and glutamatergic neurotransmission and cognitive control in patients with and without treatment-resistant schizophrenia.
