Academic Background

I am a third year PhD researcher at the UEA, joining the School of Health Sciences in January 2020.

I have worked closely for a number of years with Student Minds (the UK's student mental health charity), as a member of their Personal Experience Advisory Committee in 2013, their Steering Group in 2015 and as a member of their Policy Panel where I conducted a piece of peer-to-peer research for the Student Mental Health Research Network (SMaRteN) in 2016-2017. 

I am a co-facilitator of the SMaRteN Early Career Researcher Lab Group, and worked with SMaRteN and Vitae on research around the impact of Covid-19 on the mental health and wellbeing of PhD students and early career researchers, the preliminary findings of which can be found here -
