Biography

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, 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 and I sat on the ethics committee at the Department.

I am currently completing my PhD which aims to enhance patient and general practitioner engagement in an eHealth intervention for deprescribing antidepressants. I will do this by optimising the design the STOPs (Structured Online intervention to Promote and Support antidepressant de-prescribing in primary care) eHealth tool using a mixed methods research design.
