Summary

 

Summary

I am a PhD student researching how mental health can change over time, with a particular interest in understanding how adversities may affect this. I apply quantitative methodologies to UK and Australian cohorts and I am passionate about evidence-based research with strong scientific rigor. I am supported by Imperial College London's President's PhD Scholarship.

I was a research assistant at the School of Public Health, where I worked on a range of peer-reviewed publications. I have an MSc in Population Health (Distinction) from University College London, a Postgraduate Certificate in Pharmacy Practice, and a Bachelor of Pharmacy from Monash University.

I bring clinical experience from working as a hospital and community pharmacist in Melbourne, Australia.

When I'm not working on my PhD, I'm usually engrossed in a sport or trying to learn, badly, how to play the drums!
