Trial Coordinator


I first joined King’s College London as a placement student in 2015, working as an Honorary Research Assistant in the Stress, Psychiatry and Immunology (SPI) Lab.  After the completion of my placement year, I returned to the University of Westminster to complete the final year of my Undergraduate BSc in Psychology.  After graduating in 2017, I again returned to the Lab as a Research Assistant, before beginning an MSc here at KCL.  I graduated with a distinction in Psychiatric Research in 2018, and soon after, returned to the SPI Lab in my current position as a Trial Coordinator.  Throughout my time at KCL, my research interests have largely focused on inflammation in depression and psychosis.
