My Philosophy

I am a socially conscious neuroscientist, passionate about everything from cells to phones, jewellery to genes, hippocampi to hip-hop...

I research digital interventions, social media data, molecular biology, neuroimaging, epidemiology, psychiatry, psychology, statistical methodologies, and other areas to improve our understanding of mental health. I have experience in senior research management roles.

I love engaging with youth culture, the arts and society.
