I completed my BSc in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Cambridge in 2016, before joining the Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences at King's College London as a Research Assistant, and subsequently a PhD student.

In October 2020 I was awarded my PhD, in which I investigated the impact and contributing factors for the high rates of co-occurring mental health symptoms (e.g., anxiety, depression) observed in autism.

As a Postdoctoral Research Associate on the project AIMS-2-TRIALS, I continue to lead work on the impact (e.g., on quality of life) and potential underpinning mechanisms (e.g., alexithymia, emotion regulation difficulties, sensory processing differences) for co-occurring mental health symptoms in autism, based on data from AIMS-2-TRIALS cohorts and associated clinical research projects.

I have been a Graduate Teaching Assistant on the BSc Psychology/MSc Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences programmes and received Associate Fellowship of the HEA in May 2019.
