I joined KCL in February 2020. I am part of the Nicotine Research Group at KCL and the SPECTRUM Consortium: My work involves analysing survey data on tobacco/nicotine/alcohol use and mental ill-health, co-designing anti-tobacco health messages for people with mental ill-health, and setting up and running a public involvement group for people with experience of tobacco/nicotine use and mental ill-health. I am part of the SPECTRUM Academy, the SPECTRUM Impact Group and KCL’s Addictions Department’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

I have a PhD from Oxford Brookes University (2016-2020). My PhD project included a pilot randomised controlled trial that assessed the effect of alcohol strength on alcohol consumption within licensed premises.

As an associate lecturer in public health at Oxford Brookes University, I wrote an MSc distance-learning module on epidemiology.

In 2019, I received an award from the European Society for Prevention Research (EUSPR) for outstanding early career researcher.
