Research Assistant


I joined King’s College London IoPPN in 2023 as a research assistant, embarking on the CaFI-2 project. This aims to evaluate the efficacy of culturally adapted family interventions specifically tailored for individuals of African-Caribbean descent who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia or psychosis, as well as their families.

Prior to this role, I operated as a research practitioner at GSTT supporting a diverse portfolio of gastroenterology and oncology research studies. Within this role, I oversaw the management and advancement of a comprehensive range of both commercial and non-commercial Clinical Trial of Investigational Medicinal Products (CTIMP), encompassing pharmacological and surgical investigations spanning the comprehensive phases of I through IV. Moreover, I actively collaborated with King's College London on a notable research initiative focused on psychological chronic pain management. This collaborative endeavor centered around employing targeted interventions aimed at improving the overall well-being and health outcomes of individuals grappling with chronic pain.
