I'm a Research Fellow on the Mental Health Implementation Network project which supports the delivery of evidence based mental health interventions in England. More specifically, I'll be working with the team to evaluate the impact of carefully selected interventions with the aim of scaling up.

Previously, I was a project manager and postdoctoral researcher at the department of Psychiatry at Oxford University, where I worked on the MindKind Study, and the OxWell School Mental Health Survey looking at factors which directly affect young people’s mental health in their everyday lives. My research so far has largely focused on youth mental health both globally and more locally within the UK, working with stakeholders in academia and beyond.
