Research Fellow



Lucy is a Research Fellow in the Mental Health and Addiction Research Group and works on the ComBAT study. ComBAT is a research programme examining Community-based Behavioural Activation Training (ComBAT) for Depression in Adolescents.

Lucy graduated from the University of Hull with a BSc in Psychology in 2007 followed by an MSc in Health Psychology from Coventry University in 2009. Following completion of her MSc, Lucy has worked in a variety of research roles and settings including as a research assistant (Coventry University), a clinical trials assistant (Scarborough General Hospital) and as a trial coordinator (Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust). As a trial coordinator Lucy was predominantly involved in the projects CITADEL (a feasibility study and pilot trial of computerised cognitive behaviour therapy for depression in adolescents) and ASPECT (a non-inferiority randomised controlled trial comparing the clinical and cost-effectiveness of one session treatment (OST) with multi-session cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in children with specific phobias).

Lucy completed her ESRC-funded PhD within the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York. This focused on the development and evaluation of a computerised Behavioural Activation programme for adolescents with depression.
