I am a 3rd year PhD student and Gates Scholar in the Department of Psychiatry. My research primarily focuses on how we can use public health approaches to reduce the burden of mental health difficulties in children and young people. I am particularly interested in the role of schools in identifying and responding to mental health difficulties.

The DEAL study (Project Leads: Prof Tamsin Ford, Dr Emma Howarth): this study aims to build a prototype of an early identification programme for primary schools in the UK. Stakeholder engagement with parents, school staff, and mental health practitioners is at the heart of the study’s programme design and development. (Funded by the Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) East of England)
At-Risk for Elementary School Educators: Afeasibility study (Project Leads: Emma Soneson, Prof Peter Jones): this feasibility study aims to examine the utility, feasibility, and acceptability of a simulation-based, online training programme (Kognito’s At- Risk for Elementary School Educators) for improving the identification of and response to mental health difficulties in primary school aged children. (Funded by the UKRI Emerging Minds Network)
OxWell School Survey (Project Leads: Prof Mina Fazel, Dr Karen Mansfield): this pupil survey examines a number of important domains, including mental health and wellbeing, lifestyle factors, school experience, safety, and relationships. I will be analysing survey responses to better understand mental health help-seeking behaviours in schools and in the community.
