Postdoctoral Research Assistant
I am a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute (SCNi). I am currently working on the Teensleep study which is examining the impact of sleep education on adolescent sleep, health and academic performance.
After a career in publishing and marketing, I pursued my interest in psychology through an MRes in Developmental Psychology, followed by a PhD in Psychology focusing on maternal mind-mindedness. My previous research roles include Clinical Studies Officer at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, and Research Associate at Oxford Brookes University.
