Personal profile

Academic Background

My research interests include the role of sleep problems in mental health, with a specific interest in the mechanisms linking sleep disruption and psychotic symptoms (delusions and hallucinations), the wider impact of sleep problems on those with severe mental illnesses, and interventions to improve how sleep disorders are treated in mental health services. 

Alongside conducting my own research I teach on the research portions of the clinical psychology doctorate course (ClinPsyD). I strongly believe that all clinical psychologists should be confident and comfortable conducting high-quality research, but also that they should be enthusiastic about the capacity of research to improve the care in mental health. This excitement is something I aim to foster throughout my teaching and supervision. 

Outside of my role at UEA I work clinically in NHS Early Intervention in Psychosis services. I think it is important to combine clinical and research roles in order to work most effectively in both areas; my clinical work is informed by research, and my research is informed by my clinical experience.
