I am currently stationed at the department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry as a Research Assistant and commenced this position in November 2018. I am undertaking a research with Prof Stephen Scott where I am investigating the validity of direct observation of parent-child interaction in children with conduct problems.  

Before King’s I worked as a project coordinator/ commissioned researcher for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, on a mental health project entailing the development of an Online self-managed care planning tool. I was also the editor for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust website.  

Post the completion of my MSc degree at University of Essex I continued to work there as a research assistant at the department of Psychology on two independent researches. One was an extension of my thesis titled Parenting as a cause of BPD and the other was titled Motivation for Caregiving: Stress as an Antecedent and Implications for Children’s Well-Being. The later was the first paper to test parent’s autonomous motivation for engaging the parent-child relationship. 

My previous qualifications entail BA (Hons.) from University of Delhi followed by a MSc in Psychology from the University of Essex and a second MSc degree (MSc in Child and Adolescent mental health) from King’s College London.
