Introduction
BA (Hons) Psychology and Philosophy, Durham University. MSc Psychological Research student at the University of Edinburgh. For my MSc thesis, I developed a novel self-report measure of monotropism under the supervision of Prof Sue Fletcher-Watson and in collaboration with an autistic community group. I'm interested in clinical and differential psychology, specifically psychological assessment.
