Lecturer in Psychology - Epidemiology, Health Behaviours and Genetic Factors Psychology


Personal Statement

I'm a psychologist and epidemiologist interested in understanding the causal nature of associations between lifestyle behaviours and mental health. In particular I am interested in the impact of recreational drug use on mental health, and vice versa. I have been a lecturer here since January 2017.

I obtained my PhD from the University of Bristol in 2014, where I also worked as a researcher both before and after my PhD studies. I have a BSc in psychology and an MSc in cognitive neuropsychology from UCL.
