I started my studies in psychology at the University of Exeter where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2020. Following this, I joined CREW at KCL as part of the Medical Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership (MRC DTP) in late 2020, with a project examining alterations in neuroplasticity in anorexia nervosa and treatment implications (supervised by Dr Hubertus Himmerich and Professor Janet Treasure), which was completed in 2023.
My research interests are mainly in the neurobiology of eating disorders, using mixed methodology (e.g., neuroimaging, neuropsychological measures, blood-based markers of inflammation and neuroprotection), the phenomenology of cognitive and brain changes in people with AN, as well as the translation to novel psychotherapeutic, psychopharmacological and arts-based treatments.
