Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge.
I graduated from Cambridge University in 2006 with a BA in Law and initially worked as a trainee solicitor in a London-based international law firm. Through my experiences of voluntary work with children and adults with developmental disabilities, I became increasingly interested in psychology. Since then I have worked as both a support worker and teaching assistant in specialist schools for children with autism spectrum conditions and in 2012 completed an MEd in Psychology at the University of Bristol. I was elected to a University of Cambridge Sims Scholarship, and completed a PhD that combined my interests in psychology and law and focused on understanding of Magistrates’ Courts among adults with intellectual disabilities in relation to the Article 6 right to a fair trial under the Human Rights Act 1998. I was supervised by Dr Isabel Clare and Dr Howard Ring.
