Connect with Georgina


Georgina is a Research Associate at the ESRC Centre for Society & Mental Health. She completed a BSc in Psychology at UCL, followed by an MSc in Psychiatric Research at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN). Her PhD, based in the Department of Psychology at the IoPPN, was a mixed methods approach to understanding the cognitive and behavioural pathways underlying common mental health problems (depression, anxiety & suicidality) among LGBTQ+ university students in the UK.

Subsequently, she worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher and Project Coordinator of the HEADS-UP study (HIV Empowering Adults Decision to Share – UK/Uganda Project) which was a collaboration between Royal Holloway University of London, 6 NHS trusts, the Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA) and the Joint Clinical Research Centre (JCRC) in Kampala, Uganda. This post involved working closely with the PI to develop and test the feasibility of a behavioural intervention which aimed to increase onward HIV disclosure levels and support onward HIV disclosure decision-making in young people living with perinatally acquired HIV in the UK and Uganda.

Georgina joined the Marginalised Communities Programme at the ESRC Centre as a Research Associate in May 2022.
