Project: Investigating Genetic and Clinical Predictors of Outcomes Following Treatment in the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Service

Start date at Kings: 1/10/2018


Research interests

I am currently in the second year of my PhD, in which I am investigating how genetic, clinical and sociodemographic factors predict outcomes following psychological therapies for adult depression and anxiety disorders. I am particularly interested in the interplay between psychiatric symptoms and social/occupational functioning. I employ a range of analytical methods, including statistical genetic techniques such as genome-wide association and polygenic risk scores, and structural equation modelling for phenotypic data. I am currently working on a project with data from the UK Biobank cohort and another using patient data from the NHS “Improving Access to Psychological Therapies” (IAPT) programme. My next project will use data from the Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) Study.
