Research Interests and Techniques

I am a clinical lecturer on the clinical psychology doctorate (DClinPsy) course. My role includes teaching (including statistical methods in clinical psychology), module convening (including the Working with Complexity and Families and Groups modules), marking and research supervision. I also chair the DClinPsy Assessment Committee, and contribute to undergraduate teaching on adult anxiety. I have a broad range of interests in psychology and its clinical applications.
