Personal profile

Research interests

I came to the UK in 2008 to do an MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Southampton. I then had the opportunity to work in the MIBS study (Management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome in primary care) and at the UCL School of Pharmacy with Prof. Rob Horne developing an online intervention to improve medication adherence for individuals with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

I am currently working as a Research Worker at the Health Psychology Section (Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, KCL). I am involved in a multicentre randomised controlled trial that aims to assess the clinical and cost effectiveness of low intensity and high intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in refractory Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

I am also doing a part-time PhD alongside this large trial, which is focused specifically on the emotional processes of individuals with refractory IBS after CBT. My supervisors are Prof. Rona Moss-Morris, Prof. Trudie Chalder and Dr. Hazel Everitt.

I am particularly interested in developing theory-based self-management interventions to improve the quality of life and well-being of people with chronic conditions. I enjoy working within multi-disciplinary teams and learning from colleagues with different cultural and professional backgrounds.
