Biography

I just finished my MRes degree in Experimental Neuroscience and started to work as a research assistant at Imperial College London in the Mood Instability Research group, where we investigate the psychological processes behind self-harm.

During my Master’s, I completed three distinct projects, from which one was about subcortical morphometry in substance dependence. I am mainly interested in the reward pathway and how it is altered in addiction and in other mental health problems. My goal is to start my PhD next autumn in a related area after gaining more experience as a research assistant.
