I am a recent MPhil graduate in psychiatry from the University of Cambridge. My thesis was on the role of positive autobiographical memory specificity in vulnerability to depression in adolescents. I am currently at the end of my training in clinical psychology at the University of Oslo. My aim is to become a clinical psychologist and researcher. I hope that my work will have a positive effect on the lives of those suffering from mental health issues.
I think this is an exciting time to be involved in clinical psychological research. The field is moving fast towards integrating research spanning from genes and hormones, to emotions and social experiences in mental health disorders.
