Research interests

Lucie's research interests lie within biopsychosocial models of mental illness, health inequalities and public health.

Lucie's first degree focused on the neuroeitiology and psychopharmacology of mental illness. She now works within the social care and society research group, focusing upon qualitative research methods, quality of life and social care for people living with a mental illness. Lucie is interested in cross-disciplinary research that utitlises evidence-based neuropsychosocial models of mental illness to improve psychological treatment methods (CBT/EMDR/DBT). 

Lucie is also interested in the neurobiology of psychological trauma, and how this relates to the eitiology and treatment of anxiety disorders (GA/OCD/PTSD), eating disorders (AN/BN) and cluster B personality disorders (BPD/NPD/HPD).

Lucie is committed to translational approaches that influence policy and practice in order to postively impact the quality of life of patients. She is also passionate about providing accessible lay-person research dissemination that aims to empower patients through education, particularly in lay-person summaries, conferences and events.
