About me

I am a Research Psychologist at the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR), and am extremely proud to be part of such a professional team with an international reputation for high quality applied research in a unique field.

I completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Mental Health in 2008, and have since completed two Masters degrees in Research Methods and Health Psychology.  I completed a PhD by publication (DPhil) in 2015 on the psychological impact of cleft lip and/or palate.

I co-lead the CARE study (Craniofacial microsomia: Accelerating Research and Education) at CAR.  I am Behavioural Sciences Section Editor of the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal, member of the Craniofacial Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and Board member of the NHS Craniofacial Clinical Studies Group.

Area of expertise

My predominant area of interest is the psychological impact of health conditions which affect appearance.  Since 2010 I have specialised in the field of congenital craniofacial conditions, predominantly cleft lip and palate.

Recent projects include: the impact of having a child with a cleft on fathers; the experiences and support needs of adolescents and adults born with cleft; decision-making around having children when there is a history of cleft in the family; and the impact of an additional condition (such as a syndrome or a developmental delay) on psychological adjustment to cleft.

I enjoy a close working relationship with the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (www.clapa.com) and have an interest in authentic Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in research.
