Peter completed his BSc (Honours) in Applied Psychology and Sociology at the University of Surrey in 2008 before completing his Masters in Mental Health Studies at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) in 2012. For his thesis Peter used causal pathway modelling to explore the nature and direction of hypothesised pathways linking ADHD symptoms and impairment, negative self concept and frequent depressive intrusive cognitions. Peter used his findings to present a meta cognitive pathway model of psychopathological outcomes in ADHD. During his studies at the IoPPN Peter also worked as a research assistant on the MIRIAD Project (Mood Instability Research in ADHD). Peter also helped to construct a novel rating scale designed to measure Excessive Mind Wondering in adults with ADHD (the Mind Excessively Wandering Scale [MEWS]) and co-authored the publication of the scale in the Journal of Attention Disorders. Peter is a member of the UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN) Research Advisory Board and has provided advice and consultation to the Committee for several years. Peter currently works within a secure forensic hospital for adults with learning disabilities and mental health difficulties.
