I am the Subject Liaison Librarian for Biosciences and Psychology.

Training and support

I provide guidance and support to library users through group or individual training sessions to promote the Library's resources, and to help users make the best use of them. New users are encouraged to start their library skills journey by viewing the Subject and LibrarySkills@UCL Guides.

I am available to deliver training as part of taught programme timetables, and contribute to the bookable Library Skills Training schedule of events.

You can contact me using the "Email Me" button on this page. Non subject support enquiries can be asked either on UCL Library Chat or through e-mailing

Liaison and collections

I liaise with departments to ensure that print and digital resources are in place to support teaching and research, and am a point of contact for queries and feedback related to wider library services and resources. Find out more about Librarian Liaison with Faculty and Departments.

I manage the Biology, Botany, Medical Sciences, Psychology and Zoology collections located in the Science Library. To suggest a resource, please complete our suggestion form. There is further guidance for module leads.

I have indicated the specific departments that I support below. UCL staff and researchers in these departments may like to join my mailing list for periodic updates related to teaching and research.
