After obtaining a PhD in developmental psychology (2015), I managed the Culturally-appropriate Schizophrenia Psychological Education Resources (CaSPER) project, which involved co-producing an e-learning resource about schizophrenia with and for African-Caribbean families affected by psychosis. I also managed a pilot trial to test the intervention's feasibility and acceptability. I also worked on a multisite study developing and testing Culturally-adapted Family Intervention (CaFI), a psychosocial intervention aimed for African & Caribbean families affected by psychosis.

I now work as a research associate to support setting up a new research unit titled 'Perinatal Mental Health and Parenting Research Unit' ('PRIME-RU') at the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH). 

In addition to research, I'm a dissertation supervisor on the MEd Psychology of Education course.
