I am a mental health professional with experience in various roles such as project management, mental health promotion, working with older people (dementia) and mental health advisor in HE, both in the UK and abroad. I joined the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at De Montfort University as a VC2020 Lecturer in Mental Health and Learning Disabilities, which is a role that combines research and teaching/learning activities.
I am currently studying for my PhD in Mental Health at Lancaster University. Following my MSc in Mental Health Practice, my research project makes use of visual methodologies (photography) to explore the experience and meaning of recovery from mental distress as perceived by mental health service users. This qualitative and phenomenological study is conducted in collaboration with a mental health charity in Romania.

Along with my PhD thesis exploring the experience and meaning of recovery from mental distress from the service users’ perspective, I am currently working on a systematic review (narrative synthesis) on the use of photography-based methods in recovery research and practice.
