Noor’s current role in ADePT involves working on the NIHR-funded Cardiac Rehabilitation for Young People (CardioActive) project, which began in 2022. This project is evaluating the acceptability and feasibility of a cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programme for children and young people (CYP) with heart conditions which integrates mental and physical health-focused components.
Noor completed her BSc in Psychology with International Study at The University of Manchester. Her third-year studies took her to the University of California, Irvine, where she worked as a research assistant in a sleep and cognition lab. This experience enabled her to work on a variety of projects that assessed the role of sleep and restorative breathing on memory processes, mental health, and physical health.
Following her undergraduate degree, Noor completed an MSc in Clinical and Health Psychology at the University of Manchester. Her MSc project focused on investigating the relationships between sleep quality, substance use, and suicidality in people with non-affective psychosis. This research nurtured Noor’s interest in exploring the impact of sleep on cognitive and emotional symptoms across common mental health conditions.
