PhD Candidate, UCL

Thesis title: Improving Mood with Psychoanalytic and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy: My Experience (IMPACT-ME) – the experiences of parents.

Research Interests: My research interests lie in trying to understand the processes or mechanisms behind developing and overcoming depression, in order to inform treatment and preventive interventions for this disorder.

Brief Biography: I graduated with a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology from Lancaster University in 2009. Two years later, I completed an MSc degree in Research Methods in Psychology at UCL. The focus of my Masters dissertation was on the mental health and functioning of adults with parents with depression. I have also worked as a Research Assistant on three large projects: the Meningococcal Outcomes Study in Adolescents and In Children (MOSAIC), a randomised controlled trial of the Healthy Eating and Lifestyle Programme (HELP) for adolescents with obesity and their families, and the CAMHS Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC).
