Biography
I trained as a Clinical Psychologist at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), King's College London (KCL). After this I worked for over 15 years in a National and Specialist Clinic for Young People with Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders. Alongside my clinical work, I undertook a range of research including leading clinical trials of cognitive behaviour therapy. During this period, I was also awarded two fellowships, the first of which was funded by the National Institute for Health Research Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre, and the second by the Medical Research Council. The latter enabled me to undertake a PhD at the IoPPN within the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre.
Research Summary

My research focuses on understanding mechanisms underpinning certain mental disorders in young people, with the goal of improving psychological treatments, particularly cognitive behaviour therapy. I am especially interested in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related conditions, such as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). I am also interested in transdiagnostic processes, and understanding how conditions such as OCD and BDD relate to other disorders. My research involves a range of methodologies, encompassing behavioural genetics, experimental psychology, epidemiology and clinical trials.
