Ms Hayley Denyer

PhD Student

Biography

Hayley is a PhD student at the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) Centre at the IoPPN, KCL, funded by the Medical Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership. Hayley’s PhD focusses on the application of remote measurement technology to identify health behaviours and targets for intervention in individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Hayley has been involved in the ADHD Remote Technology (ART) research programme since 2019, where she spent a year working as a Research Assistant on the ART pilot study at the SGDP, which developed a remote monitoring battery to help assess and manage ADHD symptoms and impairments. Hayley is now involved and is study co-ordinator of the new ADHD Remote Technology study of cardiometabolic risk factors and medication adherence (ART-CARMA), a large EU funded project using remote measurement technology to follow 300 adults with ADHD for 12 months.

Before joining the SGDP, Hayley spent two years working at Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, University College London researching psychiatric risk in children with intellectual disability of known genetic aetiology, and a year researching sleep in children in children with neurodevelopmental disorders at the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders, University of Birmingham.
