I am a psychology assistant in the Oxford Cognitive Approaches to Psychosis (O-CAP) research team currently working on two randomised controlled trials, THRIVE and gameChange, investigating the use of virtual reality for psychological therapies.
THRIVE is investigating if VR can help people with persecutory delusions feel safer when out and about. gameChange aims to help people with psychosis feel more confident and less anxious in everyday situations. This project involves collaborations with the Royal College of Arts, the McPin Foundation, NIHR, MindTech, OxfordVR, and multiple universities across the UK.
I have a research MSc in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience with a specialisation in Psychopathology from Maastricht University. My master's thesis project involved developing and validating a novel self-report measure for defence behaviours in paranoia. I also have a BA in Social Sciences from University College Maastricht, with a semester abroad in UC Berkeley.
