Personal profile

Research interests

My PhD is focused on further exploring fatigue within adolescent depression. In particular, I want to explore what fatigue looks like in depressed adolescents; how adolescents experience and understand fatigue within depression; how fatigue in adolescent depression can be measured; and what interventions are effective at reducing fatigue in adolescents. This research is supported by the ESRC South West Doctoral Training Partnership and is supervised by Dr Maria Loades (University of Bath), Professor Barney Dunn (University of Exeter), and Dr Kate Cooper (University of Bath).
