Joe Barnby, BSc MSc PhD (Cand.) MBPsS

I’m an MRC funded doctoral scientist at the IoPPN (King’s College London) in the UK.

I specialise in psychopharmacology and cognitive neuroscience, and I’m interested in paranoia,  altered states, delusions, and psychosis, and what these experiences can tell us about social interaction in humans generally.


You can read my scientific publications here and find my Google Scholar profile here.

I’m also a psychologist at Thrive – a mental health app that provides evidence-based digital support to service users –  and provide life science and mental health science consultations, whether this is on experimental design, neuroscience and mental health education, or data interpretation, analysis, and visualisation.

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

In 2019, I was awarded the British Association of Psychopharmacology’s Science Communication and Public Engagement Award for my work with Senscapes, as well as my work with media in promoting mental health education.

If you’d like to get in touch about how to interpret your data rigorously and/or make your data look better you can find my details on the contact page.
