I have served as a board member of the BJPsych Bulletin since 2011 and love this role.
Former editor of CAMH Journal (2018-2020), where I held responsibility for debate and clinical research update sections.
Editorial board member of Psychiatric Bulletin (2010-2019).
In 2018 I received a distinction for an MSc in Medical Humanities at King’s College London.
I started a PhD with the title ‘Flesh and Blood’ in October 2019.
My PhD uses Critical and Creative Writing to address four questions:
- What metaphors are used by doctors and patients when communicating about foetal death?
- Is there a conflict between the way obstetricians imagine and describe foetal death and the way that women experience it?
- How are parental-foetal relationships represented or denied through these metaphors?
- How might these representations inform medical understanding of grief and maternal mental health?
