I have been at UCL in the Department of Applied Health Research (DAHR) since 2011. Before that I completed a PhD at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London with Prof. Graham Thornicroft and Joanna Murray. I have an MSc from the University of Surrey in Forensic Psychology, and a BA in Natural Sciences from Cambridge where I specialised in Experimental Psychology. I have also worked as a psychology research assistant on an Arts in Hospitals project, in schools as a teaching assistant, with the Schizophrenia Research Group at Oxford University and as an associate at the Centre for Mental Health.

In May 2012 I set up a Qualitative Methods Discussion Group in the Department of Applied Health Research as a forum for informal discussion and support with qualitative work. To date we have had 15 one-hour meetings, each presented by a different member of the department. The groups are well attended, including a number of colleagues from outside UCL.
In December 2013, I helped to organise the first UCL Qualitative Health Research Network symposium (our abstracts for the 2nd year were published here: http://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/5/4/UCLSymposiumAbstracts1.abstract).
This is a biannual event designed to bring together early career researchers from disparate disciplines undertaking qualitative research in applied and theoretical health settings. We also run a series of seminars.
