I am a research fellow and clinical psychologist at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, Research School of Population Health, at the Australian National University. I am currently working with a multidisciplinary team of researchers across the Australian National University on the Our Health in Our Hands (OHIOH) Project that aims to transform healthcare by developing new personalised health technologies and solutions in collaboration with people living with multiple sclerosis (MS), clinicians and health care providers.

I was awarded a Doctorate of Philosophy (Clinical Psychology) in 2018 from the Australian National University. My PhD research was on improving face perception, social interactions and quality of life in people living with age-related macular degeneration.

I have been a practicing psychologist since 2016 specialising in treating post-traumatic stress disorder in first responders and veterans. 

My research interests intersect across psychology, health research, population health, translational research, personalised medicine and communication in science.

I am passionate about people, wellbeing, resilience, growth, empowerment-based leadership and gender equity.
