During her time at the university, she also completed a one-year NHS work placement where she conducted a study to evaluate a new generalist therapy for Personality Disorders. After graduating from UCL, she worked in industry for just over a year where she completed a graduate scheme within medical market research agency. She then joined the Applied Social Science group in the PCU in January 2021. She has previous experience using large longitudinal datasets, for instance she conducted a study to investigate the long-term mental health effects of prenatal cannabis use in the ALSPAC cohort.
Broadly speaking, her main research interest is the factors which determine why some individuals who experience childhood adversity develop mental illnesses whereas others do not. Currently, she is working on a meta-analysis of papers that use the risk residuals approach to study resilience. She is also interested in mental health service provision for children and adolescents and how such services can be improved.
