MSc in Global Mental Health from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and King's College London. My research experience includes lab management and research support in a developmental psychobiology lab focusing on the healthy development of the adolescent brain in relation to risk-taking behavior and emotion regulation in adults. I was a research assistant at the Centre for Global Mental Health (IoPPN) under the supervision of Dr. Melanie Abas supporting a multi-international global health grant application as well as multiple smaller research projects and literature reviews. Currently, I am a researcher at George Washington University in DC, in the global mental health lab led by Dr. Brandon Kohrt.
