After completing my degree in psychology at Cardiff University in 1997, I went on to complete a PhD in psycholinguistics at Cardiff University in 2000. I subsequently took up a post-doctoral position at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London (KCL) from 2000 to 2005, which examined neuroimaging of episodic memory in Alzheimer's Disease. I was awarded a Wellcome Trust Value in People Fellowship award in 2005, which further explored neuroimaging of Alzheimer's Disease. I completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, KCL from 2006 to 2009. Upon completion of my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, I worked at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability and then returned to the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience in 2010. I moved to the Division of Psychiatry at University College London in 2016.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My main research interests are in evaluating psychological interventions, particularly "third-wave therapies" such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and mindfulness-based interventions for: i) older people with mental health conditions (including anxiety and depression); ii) people with neurodegenerative diseases (including motor neuron disease and dementia); iii) carers of people with neurodegenerative diseases; and iv) people with physical health conditions (including hearing problems).

Teaching Summary

I supervise postgraduate students at all levels (MSc, PhD and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology). I also provide teaching on mindfulness and third-wave psychological therapies for the MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences and the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at UCL.
