Biography

Becky started her journey at King’s doing MSc Health Psychology in 2014/15. After doing a MSc placement in the Diabetes, Psychiatry & Psychology research group at King’s, she started working in this group as a research assistant in 2016 and shortly after became a PhD student there. Her PhD work involved developing a psychological intervention to optimise insulin initiation in type 2 diabetes. Alongside Becky’s PhD she was a graduate teaching assistant for the Psychology department as well as guest lecturer for the MSc Health Psychology group at King’s. This sparked an interest in teaching and student wellbeing. Becky now works part time for the Psychology Department as a research associate on the Education for Mental Health project evaluating curriculum-based interventions to improve wellbeing in students. In addition, she also works part time in the Diabetes, Psychiatry & Psychology research group on a long-term follow-up of a cohort of people with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes.
