I completed a BSc degree in Psychology from the University of Kent in 2017 and an MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences from UCL in 2019. I previously worked for Rethink Mental Illness in East London, carrying out research looking into service user and professional views on electronic and paper medical records. Currently I am working as a research assistant at NELFT and University College London. In my spare time I volunteer for an online crisis text line service for the charity Shout as a Crisis Volunteer.
