Personal profile

Research interests

My main area of theoretical interest is reality distortion in psychosis and its underlying neurocognitive and physiological mechanisms. 

I am currently a Neuroimaging PhD candidate at KCL working with Professor Mitul Mehta and Dr. Dominic ffytche on a project exploring psychopharmacological interventions in Parkinson's Disease psychosis

I recently finished my MPhil in Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, where I investigated reinforcement learning in people at clinical or molecular genetic risk for psychosis under the supervision of Dr. Graham Murray. Previous research experience includes placements at the Psychology Department at Harvard University, and in both the Psychology and the Genetics Department at Cambridge.
