Biography

I joined KCL in 2013 as an MSc Mental Health Studies student, after which I worked in Psychosis studies for one year (2014-15). I started my PhD investigating psychological factors affecting uptake of the child influenza vaccine and parental perception of side effects in October 2015. I was based in the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Emergency Preparedness and Response.  

Having completed my PhD, I am now employed as a post-doctoral researcher in the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Emergency Preparedness and Response, where I am continuing my work on the child influenza vaccine. I am also researching factors affecting uptake of other vaccines, such as the HPV vaccine as well as helping out in the department with other research investigating emergency preparedness and response.
