Psychology (2021 cohort)

I am completing a 1+3 MSc and DPhil within the Oxford Risk and Resilience, Genes & Environment Research (oRANGE) research group in the Department of Experimental Psychology. My MSc research used data from a longitudinal birth cohort to explore children’s resilience to sibling victimisation. I am now in the first year of my DPhil, I am using longitudinal data to explore potential mechanisms responsible for the association between childhood bullying victimisation and later mental health and wellbeing. I am interested in child and adolescent mental health, longitudinal research methods and life course epidemiology.

I hold a First-class undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology and an MSc in Psychological Research Methods (Distinction), both from the University of Oxford. I have worked as a research assistant on several projects in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department at the University of Oxford, including a knowledge mobilisation project to design mental health resources for young people.
