I completed a Bachelor of Science, Psychology/Psychophysiology (Psych Hons) at Swinburne University in 2015. During my third year of undergraduate study, I began working in research and now have 10 years of experience in both the not-for-profit and academic research fields. Projects that I have worked on include preventing PTSD in patients of children with a severe illness or injury, improving infant sleep, testing a triage tool for tailoring depression care (The Target-D and Link-me studies).  

As a research assistant in the Integrated Mental Health Research Group in the Department of General Practice (DGP), University of Melbourne, I was key to the success of Target-D having been involved in the study since its inception. From this I gained expertise in research communication and the design of study materials that meet the needs of both ethics committees and research participants. I also have an interest in human ethics and have sat on the Human Ethics Advisory Group in the DGP and currently sit on the Low and Negligible Risk Human Ethics Committee, University of Melbourne. 

I am currently completing my PhD which is looking at antidepressant deprescribing in primary care. My PhD work is taking a mixed methods approach to determine the needs and perceptions of primary care patients of an eHealth intervention that will be tested as part of the WiserAD trial.
