I graduated from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, in 2005 with first class degree in neuroscience, and was awarded the A. J. Watson Prize for outstanding achievement in psychology. I then moved to Bristol and completed a MEd in the psychology of education at the Graduate School of Education. During this time I also worked as a research assistant in the Academic Unit of Primary Care, University of Bristol, on a large randomised controlled trial investigating online cognitive therapy for depression. In January 2013 I was awarded a PhD in psychiatry from the School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol, and completed a UoB-MRC Centenary Award Fellowship. I am currently an NIHR School for Primary Care Postdoctoral Fellow.
