I am a theoretical physicist, with a strong interest in applying data science approaches to better understand mental health disorders, particularly network science methods. I am currently a Henslow Research Fellow at Lucy Cavendish College and a Senior Research Associate at the Cambridge Brain Mapping Unit, where I work with Professor Ed Bullmore on graph theory analysis of brain networks (from both structural and functional MRI images). I am also a Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute, where I am the Principal Investigator on a project investigating the potential of incoherent speech to predict risk of psychotic disorders.
My PhD focussed on open quantum dynamics and building atomistic descriptions of complex, optically active materials (both biological and organic). I was supervised by Dr Alex Chin, in the Cambridge Theory of Condensed Matter group (TCM). Prior to my PhD I completed a Master’s degree in Physics at the University of Exeter.
I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Member of the Institute of Physics.
