Biography and interests:

My current role is an Assistant Clinical Psychologist working in the NHS on the gameChange clinical trial - using Virtual Reality to help treat social avoidance in psychosis. Besides my love for neuroscience and the quest to understand brain and mind, I also enjoy travelling the world (when permitted!), cooking incredible food and catching up with friends. Lockdown life has converted me into a crossword advocate and keen walker too!

Experience and approach:

During my undergraduate degree, I completed an ambassadorial teaching project where I taught A level Biology in a sixth form college for 5 months. Alongside this, I organised drop in sessions and provided ambassadorial support for students applying to university. I have also tutored GCSE and A level biology alongside my studies and spent 2 months abroad teaching primary school children in India.a
