Brief Biography: 

After studies and work ranging from physics to a traveling science circus, Emma is currently studying Clinical Neuroscience at Oxford. She is researching the alterations in learning and decision-making that can accompany anxious and depressive tendencies. Through this she hopes to develop a deeper understanding of the brain’s basis for these disorders to help inform treatment approaches. She has experienced first-hand both how devastating mental illness can be, but also how the power of hope that comes with connections to others and their stories can indeed make things brighter. She believes we can change the conversation around mental illness to better the future for sufferers and their loved ones.
