Using observational and experimental methods, I'm investigating the relationship between anxiety and alcohol use for my PhD. 


My 'Summary' page can no longer be updated. Please follow this link for more information about my current work and publications

I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2013 with a BSc in psychology with first-class honours. After completing a psychology PGCE (with distinction) at Canterbury Christ Church University in 2014, I worked as a psychology and health & social care teacher in Oxford for a year. In September 2016, I completed my MSc in research methods in psychology at the University of Bristol, working with the Tobacco and Alcohol Research Group (TARG) for my dissertation. I won the 'taught component prize' for the best taught component average mark across the neuropsychology and research methods programs.

During my PhD (October 2016 to December 2019), I investigated the relationship between anxiety and alcohol use using epidemiological and experimental methods. My supervisors were Professor Marcus Munafò, Professor Matthew Hickman, and Dr Jon Heron, and I was funded by the MRC Addiction Research Clinical Training Programme (MARC).

Since November 2019, I've been working as a postdoctoral research associate in TARG, and I'm funded by the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit (MRC IEU) at the University of Bristol.
