Emma completed her clinical psychology training (DClinPsych) and a PhD (DPhil) at the University of Oxford before taking up the post of Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Birmingham in 2022.

Through her research, Emma aims to improve the understanding and treatment of dissociative difficulties.
