Katie works in the Department of Psychological Medicine, based at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. She initially joined King’s College London in 2015 to complete an undergraduate placement year, during which she worked on a study exploring predictors of response to psychological therapy for anxiety and depression. After gaining a first-class degree in psychology from the University of Bath, Katie re-joined King’s in 2017 to work on the Remote Assessment of Disease and Relapse- Central Nervous System (RADAR-CNS) study. This involves the use of smartphone sensors and wearable fitness trackers to remotely monitor symptoms across three conditions. She is one of two research assistants who conduct and manage participant recruitment for the major depressive disorder branch of this international study.
- The use of Remote Measurement Technologies (RMTs) to monitor and predict symptoms of health conditions
- Predicting outcomes of psychological therapy for anxiety and depression
- Translation of findings in the field of e-mental health into clinical practice and wider public policy
Expertise and Public Engagement
In May 2019, Katie was awarded funding from the King’s Public Engagement Small Grant scheme for an application to curate and produce a podcast series, exploring how digital technologies are changing the face of mental health research and practice. The series will be designed and produced in co-production with young people and aims to inform and engage listeners in the latest research in the field.
