My Philosophy

I'm a neuroscientist, passionate about everything from cells to phones, genes to jewellery, hip-hop to hippocampi...

I research artificial intelligence mental healthcare, ethics and governance, digital/clinical/music-based interventions, social media data, molecular biology, neuroimaging, epidemiology, psychiatry, psychology, ultra-audible watermarking, financial health, space health, statistics, policy, public engagement and other areas to improve our understanding of mental health. I have experience developing and managing multi-million pound research initiatives. I love engaging with youth culture, the arts and society.
