After a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Neuroimaging at the University of York, I joined King's College London in 2018 as a research assistant within St Thomas’ Hospital, working on fetal and neonatal MRI studies. Subsequently, I started a PhD in October 2019 at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience in collaboration with King's College Hospital. My PhD was focused on bridging the gap between neurodevelopmental health and physical health by investigating the neurodevelopmental profile of infants and children with rare chronic conditions.

Since submitting my PhD I have been continuing this theme of work as a post-doc by working on developing a more longitudinal understanding of how neurodevelopment is shaped by early-onset life-long chronic conditions. I am an EDI Theme Representative at the NIHR Maudsley BRC.
