I’m an MRC funded doctoral researcher at the IoPPN (KCL).

I specialise in psychopharmacology and cognitive neuroscience, specifically focussed on paranoia,  altered states, delusions, and psychosis, and what these experiences can tell us about about social interaction and social learning in humans in illness and health.



You can get in touch with me on joe.barnby(at)kcl.ac.uk.

I’m also a senior scientist and mental health professional at Thrive – a mental health app that aims to provide evidence based digital support –  and provide life science and mental health science consultations, whether this is on experimental design, up to date scientific/mental health information, or data interpretation and analysis.
