PhD Student

Research Area

Tobacco and Alcohol Research


I’m a final year psychology PhD student working in the Tobacco and Alcohol Research Group (TARG) at the University of Bristol. I previously completed a BSc in psychology at the University of Southampton, a PGCE in psychology at Canterbury Christ Church University, an MSc in research methods in psychology at the University of Bristol, and I have worked as a secondary school teacher.

My main areas of interest are mental health and substance use. Using epidemiological and experimental methods, I’m currently investigating the relationship between anxiety and alcohol use. My supervisors are Professor Marcus Munafò, Professor Matthew Hickman and Dr Jon Heron. I’m funded by the MRC Addiction Research Clinical Training Programme (MARC).
