We are delighted that our past Summer Research Assistant Tom Metherell has accepted a place on the UCL Wellcome Trust PhD in Mental Health Science programme!
Tom joined our group during the Summer of 2021, funded by the British Psychological Society, and did some great work looking into the impact of digital exclusion on adolescent mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can read his preprint here, which he managed to write up and submit alongside his busy final year as a Cambridge undergraduate.
With the team’s support, he even presented this work at multiple conferences both virtual and in person. For example, he gave a talk at the University of Oxford (picture below).
We wish Tom the best of luck for his PhD at UCL, they are beyond lucky to have him!
