Research

Current project

I’m currently running a series of studies to investigate how we can use mental imagery to improve treatment for OCD. Results are yet to be published.

This research is part of my PhD candidature conducted through the Grisham OCD Lab. It is made possible by UNSW’s Scientia PhD scholarship.
