Higher Degree by Research Candidate

School of Psychology

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

My research interests are diverse but broadly I am interested in the relationships between health and psychosocial factors.

I am particularly interested in exploring relationships between psychological and physical health. I have interest and experience in researching the relationship between physiological, psychological and social factors impact on medically unexplained symptoms and the bi-directional relationship between them. I am also interested in women's and children's health and development, pregnancy and early years.

I am currently undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy in medicine (Psychology) under the supervisor of Prof Rachel Roberts, Dr. Anastasia Ejova and Dr. Rutger de Zoete. My PhD research focuses on exploring longitudinal bidirectional relationships between psychosocial factors, physiological complications and medically unexplained symptoms using population-representative longitudinal data.

In addition to my PhD research, I am currently employed as a Research Assistant in the School of Psychology and have previously worked with the School of Allied Health.
