I am a 2nd-year MRC-DTP PhD student working at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit and the Department of Psychiatry. My research focuses on mapping the relationship between social media use and youth’s mental health. Specifically, I analyse data from large-scale national surveys to examine the link between social media use and mental health in adolescents affected by different clinical conditions. Overall, I aim to map the complex interplay between digital technologies and youth’s mental health to inform clinical research, practice, education, and policy.
