About me

I am an Epidemiologist and Psychologist. My research predominantly focuses on mental health, substance use and women's health.

At UWE, I am a Senior Lecturer in Psychology and am the module lead for Psychopharmacology within the Psychology BSc programme. Prior to this, I worked as a Genetic Epidemiologist at the University of Bristol working in the Integrative Epidemiology Unit (IEU), where my research focused on potentially modifiable health behaviours (e.g., alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, physical activity) during pregnancy and their potential intergenerational impact on offspring outcomes. With a particular focus on causal effects and the role of paternal as well as maternal health behaviours in and around pregnancy. Prior to this, I completed my PhD at the University of Bristol, where I investigated offspring mental health outcomes associated with maternal prenatal alcohol use.

Area of expertise

I have expertise in substance use, mental health, and perinatal health, and I am keen to conduct further interdisciplinary research to investigate these topics. I currently also supervise doctoral students at the University of Bristol, focusing on pharmacoepidemiology in pregnancy, as well as alcohol use in autistic people.
