I am a Clinical Psychologist currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Psychology department. I completed the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2015 at the University of Bath. My clinical work has predominantly been in mental health settings with children and young people and with adults with neurodevelopmental differences. I am particularly interested in the adaptation of cognitive behavioural interventions for these groups. I am also interested in differences in gender identity and social identity in people with autism and associated psychological well-being.

My current role is with ADEPT (Autism Depression Trial), an NIHR funded randomised controlled trial of a guided self-help treatment for depression in adults with autism.

Research interests

  • Gender identity in people with autism
  • Adapting cognitive behavioural approaches for people with neurodevelopmental differences
  • Social identity and strengths in people with autism
  • Patient and public involvement in service design and research
