Tua joined UK DRI in 2022, after she graduated from King’s College London with a BSc in Psychology (Hons). At King’s College London, she was part of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), and worked as the President of the Psychology Society, and an academic representative for BSc Psychology. She worked closely with the student experience team at IoPPN, working on projects such as making the Denmark Hill Campus more student-minded, and the Personal Tutor Scheme.

Tua is currently looking into computational and clinical neuroscience, and looks forward to continuing her studies to a PhD.
In her free time, Tua enjoys all things musical: she plays three different instruments, sings and would do anything for a good gig. She loves reading and disc golf, and you can find her trying out new hobbies every other week.
