Personal profile

Research interests

I'm part of the CAMHS Digital Lab team in the Department of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. My research interests are in using epidemiological methods and data linkage to investigate issues affecting children, adolescents and young people, particularly intersections between mental health, education and criminal justice.

I have been undertaking a research fellowship funded by Administrative Data Research UK (ESRC), investigating educational trajectories and criminal justice involvement among children and adolescents using a linkage between Ministry of Justice and Department for Education data.

I undertook my PhD in the Department of Psychological Medicine. My PhD research focused on educational trajectories of children and adolescents with depression, which I investigated using linked administrative health and education datasets and longitudinal statistical modelling techniques.

Prior to my PhD, I was a Research Assistant at King’s Centre for Military Health Research and at Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. I have a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences (both University College London).
