I have worked in both a clinical and research capacity in psychosis for the past 15 years. I worked as a Psychologist in an Early Intervention Service in Newcastle, Australia before commencing my Clinical Psychology Doctoral training at the University of Newcastle, Australia, which I completed in 2006. Shortly after my training, I moved to the UK, obtaining a Research Fellow position in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Manchester. I was appointed Lecturer in 2008, becoming a member of the Clinical and Health Research Group (now the Centre for New Treatments and Understanding in Mental Health; CeNTRUM). I have worked as a trial therapist on a number of large scale randomised controlled trials in psychosis. In my role as Lecturer, I teach on the Manchester Clinical Psychology training programme (ClinPsyD), supervise research projects (at undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD levels) and carry out my own programme of research. I combine academic work with clinical practice and to that end hold an NHS Clinical Psychologist post in the complex cases service at Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust (MMHSCT). I currently hold a grant from the Medical Research Council (MRC) which looks at developing and evaluating a software application to deliver a CBT-informed intervention for early psychosis.
