BSc Psychology, MSc Occupational Psychology (in training)
I am the Administrative Assistant for the Centre for the Advancement of Sustainable Medical Innovation (CASMI). My role involves website management; I oversee publication of all news and opinion pieces for the CASMI website, and I am in charge of formatting and updating all pages using HTML coding and WordPress. I also run the CASMI Twitter account and have been involved in social media strategy and planning. I am the point of contact for the team for any general queries and act as a sounding board to pass on any issues to the relevant individual. I liaise with the UCL side of CASMI, helping to provide links between the two universities, and both the academic and policy sides of the group; in doing so, I have helped represent CASMI at academic conferences. I am responsible for researching, compiling and communicating funding opportunities to the team, and I also help with literature searches, data collection and analysis for some of the current projects. I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Southampton, and I am currently completing my MSc in Occupational Psychology at Birkbeck, University of London, and my research project will explore how wellbeing is constructed within the context of YouTube careers. I have previously worked within healthcare: in the NHS, I was part of a community mental health team, and I have contributed to the development of the National Inpatients' Survey, the National Community Mental Health Survey, and the NHS Staff Survey. I hope to pursue a career in occupational health psychology, focusing on promoting awareness and education of mental health in the workplace, and tackling stigma.
