I began teaching at the University of Westminster in 2005. Prior that I have held lecturing posts at the Open University and Birkbeck College, University of London.
My main research interests are in the field schizophrenia and the psychoses. The main study I have been involved with is the 'AESOP' project (Aetiology and Ethnicity of Schizophrenia and Other Psychoses). The AESOP project is one of the first investigations to integrate biological and social factors into research on schizophrenia.
I am a chartered Psychologist and a qualified and practicing psychotherapist and am a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
