Biography

Dr Louise Beattie is a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS). She is a graduate of the University of Glasgow, with an MA (Soc Sci)(Hons) in Psychology, MSc in Research Methods of Psychological Science, and PhD (funded by the Economic and Social Research Council). Louise was subsequently employed within the education public sector, gaining a Postgraduate Certificate in Educational Studies. This was followed by a post with the NRS Mental Health Network, and in this capacity she obtained research experience across a range of clinical studies and trials, including working closely with the Clinical Research Facility.

 

In 2019, Dr Beattie was awarded a Daphne Jackson Fellowship for research returners, funded by Medical Research Scotland. This allowed her to look at the role of sleep disruption within early psychosis, and its treatment, using qualitative and quantitative methodologies. In this part-time role Louise worked closely with Professors Andrew Gumley, Stephany Biello and Peter Uhlhaas.

 

Dr Louise Beattie is currently co-ordinating the Glasgow site of the CONNECT study (PI: Gumley), which is led by the University of Manchester. This multi-site study aims to research the prediction of relapse in psychosis using digital tools, with each individual participant taking part over twelve months.

Research interests

Dr Louise Beattie has primary research interests which broadly span sleep disruption, psychosis, socio-emotional factors (including autism), and their interactions. 

 

Her PhD research considered these relationships from an experimental psychology perspective. As a Daphne Jackson Fellow funded by Medical Research Scotland, Louise investigated sleep disruption within early psychosis using mixed methods. Dr Beattie is currently working on the CONNECT study, which will use digital symptom monitoring to develop relapse prediction models within psychosis as a large cohort study.
