Teaching summary

As a lecturer in the CEH I contribute to the psychosis and research methods components of both postgraduate and undergraduate programmes. I am currently supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students. 


I completed by first degree at the University of Glasgow and followed this with a PhD in experimental psychology at the same institution. I then moved to Imperial College London where I worked on a large scale longitudinal study of first episode psychosis focused on cognitive changes following onset of difficulties. I then trained clinically, at Royal Holloway, and then moved to a research clinical psychologist position at the Institute of Psychiatry. This involved evaluating interventions to target cognitive impairments in psychosis and then working in the Outreach and Support in South London team supporting young people with psychosis in prison.
