Personal profile


I completed my PhD at the University of Southampton in 2015 titled "Eye Movement during Complex Information Processing in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). After my PhD I spent some time working part-time as a Research Administrator for the CBT Research Team at the University of Southampton before taking up full-time work as an Assistant Psychologist at the ASD Assessment Service (North East London NHS Foundation Trust). As of summer 2017, I have started working as a Research Assistant at Coventry University, where I will be carrying out the first Psychological Autopsy study aiming to understand and prevent suicide in those with autism. The project involves interviewing friends and family of those who have died by suicide, to inform new suicide prevention strategies.
