Research Summary

I am interested in a wide range of topics relating to addiction, recreational drug use and psychopharmacology. I am currently working as a post-doctoral research associate on a project investigating the long-term effects of cannabis use in adolescents and adults on mental health, cognition and brain function. Previously, I worked on a clinical trial examining whether ketamine can be used to help treat alcohol dependence. During my PhD, I studied the relationships between nicotine and cannabis addictions and reward processing perturbations. I used various techniques in my PhD research, including behavioural tasks, fMRI and pharmacological manipulation. In 2015, I received a Bogue Scholarship to work with Dr Gill Bedi at Columbia University investigating the neural correlates of decision-making in crack cocaine and cannabis users. I am also interested in novel psychoactive substances and have worked with Dr Adam Winstock on his data from the Global Drug Surveys since 2013.
