About me

I studied for my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology at Birkbeck College, University of London before going on to complete my PhD under the supervision of Professor Naz Derakshan and Professor Beth Grunfeld. My research focuses on the cognitive and emotional health, as well as the occupational health of women living with a diagnosis of primary or secondary breast cancer. My research utilises a mixed methods approach including, self-report questionnaires, semi-structured interviews, objective measures of cognitive function and EEG. Currently, I am a post-doctoral research assistant working at the Centre for Building Resilience in Breast cancer and CINN, being mentored by Professor Naz Derakshan. I am interested in examining the impact of cancer-related cognitive impairment and emotional distress (anxiety and depression) on work-related outcomes, as well as investigating cognitive training interventions and strategies that can be utilised to remediate the difficulties faced by women after a diagnosis of breast cancer.
