    Personal profile

    Biographical details

    My research interests include cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging, especially in the context of clinical applications in mood disorders. My PhD investigated the value of imaging biomarkers, related to emotional biases, in predicting response to treatment in patients with major depressive disorder. As part of my PhD, I also contributed to a National Institute for Health and Care Research-funded clinical trial exploring the feasibility of a novel computerised decision support algorithm to provide antidepressant treatment guidance for general practitioners in the UK primary care service. Before joining the King’s MRC DTP programme, I completed a prestigious multidisciplinary undergraduate degree at University College Roosevelt, the Netherlands, and a MSc in Biomedical Sciences at University College London, UK. My MSc project focused on the murine microbiome and contributed to a pre-clinical study which looked at validating a novel therapeutic for use in treatment of trimethylaminuria. I am currently involved in a project investigating neurocognitive signatures predicting risk of recurrent depression ("NESPRED"), with a focus on the neural basis of self-blaming biases.
