I joined King’s College London in 2013. My work focuses on developing, testing, and implementing digital therapies for people experiencing depression and/or anxiety in response to living with physical long-term condition(s). I enjoy the challenge of translating research into routine clinical care, supporting the adoption of this process, and evaluating it scientifically. An example of one of the interventions I developed with a team of academic clinicians at King’s College London can be found here:
