I am currently working on my PhD at UCL looking at childhood and adolescent migration, social determinants and psychosis risk. 

I am interested in using a variety of methods to capture the experience and risk of mental health problems in diverse populations. I am using social and psychiatric epidemiological methods to explore whether migration in younger ages changes psychosis risk when compared to migration in adulthood and why this may be. I will also be looking at whether these changes are consistent across different ethnic groups and whether social determinants post-migration play a role in psychosis risk. I am also interested in documenting the experience migrants through qualitative interviews. 

I have an interest in using mixed-methods to answer research questions from a variety of perspectives. I have experience in using a variety of research methods and including people with lived experience of mental health problems as well as using my own lived experience to inform the research process.

I am funded by the Wellcome Trust and on the UCL-Wellcome Mental Health Sciences PhD programme. 

Research Themes
Research Summary
I have a Biochemistry and Neuroscience background but spent time working in the charity sector working on mental health research and evaluation projects using mainly qualitative methods. I have worked on evaluating a women's peer support intervention, employment peer support for people with mental health problems and on the implementation of the gameChange virtual reality therapy for people with psychosis who experience social avoidance from the perspectives of service users. 

I have a particular focus at involving service users throughout the research process, especially those most removed from the research world, and finding new ways to do so in methods that do not typically involve service users.
