View my portfolio

I am a postdoctoral researcher working in the Department of Biostatistics and Health Informatics in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King's College London, and a freelance science communicator.

My research interests are the reliability of remotely collected speech for mental health assessment and its acceptability to research participants and service users. I worked on the RADAR-CNS project as part of the Data Analysis & Biosignatures work package, with a particular focus on speech recordings collected using smartphones from individuals with major depressive disorder and multiple sclerosis.

I have a PhD in ultrasound imaging from the University of Edinburgh and clinical experience in radiotherapy physics, having worked in hospitals in the UK, Ireland and Australia.

As a freelance science writer, I have researched and written articles for specialist and popular media. My work has been published in Physics World, medicalphysicsweb (a former Physics World sister site), The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings blog, Science Meets Business, Cosmos magazine, Australian Geographic and several careers and educational resources.
