I am a Trainee Clinical Psychologist at the Oxford Institute of Clinical Psychology Training and Research (2022-2025). Prior to starting training, I predominantly worked in neuropsychology inpatient and outpatient settings in both a clinical and research capacity. In my first year of training, I was on a year-long split placement in Buckinghamshire between Perinatal Mental Health Services and the Older Adult Community Mental Health Team. My current placement is with the Children’s Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities in Northamptonshire.

My doctoral research projects are around exploring the wellbeing of carers of stroke survivors, validation of neuropsychological measures in the assessment of post-concussion symptoms, and the evaluation of anti-racism training for OxICPTR staff.
