Contact details




After finishing my BA and MSc in Clinical Psychology in California, I completed my PhD at the University of Manchester in Clinical Psychology as well. I have worked as a researcher at UCL, Imperial College London and eventually at KCL. I have been responsible for the overall management of two NIHR Programme Grants for Applied Research, and previously an ESRC Dementia Initiative Grant. Although my main area of interest is in psychological interventions in psychosis, I have also worked in psychological interventions in dementia. All of my work has been built around the importance of service user and carer involvement throughout the life of a research project.
