Contact details


I am interested in using epidemiological research methods and data linkage to investigate issues affecting children, adolescents and young people. My work particularly focuses on the intersection between mental health, education and crime.

My current research fellowship is funded by Administrative Data Research UK (ESRC). I am investigating educational trajectories and criminal justice involvement among children and adolescents using a linkage between Ministry of Justice and Department for Education data.

I undertook my PhD in the Department of Psychological Medicine at King’s College London. My PhD research focused on educational trajectories of children and adolescents with depression, which I investigated using linked administrative health and education datasets and longitudinal statistical modelling techniques.

Prior to my PhD, I was a Research Assistant at King’s Centre for Military Health Research. I have a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences (both University College London).
