Amelia is a PhD student at the University of Oxford researching treatment-resistant (also known as difficult to treat, recurrent, life-long) depression. That is when people take anti-depressants but feel that their mood is getting worse or staying the same.

Her interests include anxiety, bipolar, depression, suicide Ideation, qualitative research and primary care.
