I am currently a research student at the University of Southampton, on the Jubilee +3 PhD scholarship. My main research interests are in health and medical psychology. My current project focuses on incorporating adolescent and parent input into the development of online interventions for adolescent chronic pain.

I completed a 3-year BSc in Psychology at the University of Kent in 2015, graduating with first class honours; my undergraduate project was in cognitive neuroscience, and involved the direct application of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. I have since completed an MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Surrey, with a project on the impact of exposure to different female body types on health-behaviour motivations. Following this, I spent 4 months volunteering within the Camden & Islington NHS psychological therapies service as an Honorary Assistant Psychologist.

My current research project aims to contribute to the development of a UK-based, online intervention for adolescent chronic pain. This involves collecting quantitative and qualitative data, which explores the internet needs of adolescents with chronic pain, and how an interdisciplinary approach to pain self-management might be facilitated online.
