I joined King’s College London as a Senior Lecturer in December 2021. My research focuses on understanding the psychology of pain and symptom perception and leveraging this understanding to develop brief, targeted interventions that improve health outcomes for young people living with acute and chronic illness. I previously completed a PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford followed by five years of postdoctoral training at Stanford University Medical School in the U.S. I also hold an MSc in Psychological Research from the University of Oxford and a BSc in Experimental Psychology from the University of Sussex.
