Jo Li

Postdoctoral Reseacher, ATTUNE Project

Jo is a postdoctoral researcher in the CHIMES Collaborative working on the ATTUNE project ( which aims to understand the impact of adverse childhood experiences on mental health, and co-design preventative arts and digital interventions tailored to the needs of young people. Jo's specific role involves investigating the feasibility and acceptability of a serious game approach for adolescents who have faced adversity. Additionally, at the Ethox Centre, she is examining the ethical underpinnings of gaming interventions and arts-based methods within the broader context of the ATTUNE project's Ethics Cross-Cutting Theme.

Jo completed her PhD in Psychological Medicine at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London. Her project was a mixed methods evaluation of treatment adaptations introduced by the PEACE pathway at the National Eating Disorders Service in London. These adaptations were developed to better accommodate the unique needs of autistic individuals with eating disorders. In her concurrent role as project manager for the pathway, Jo supported the dissemination of service innovations and co-managed a randomised controlled trial investigating the use of socially assistive robots in supporting emotion regulation among patients with eating disorders.

 Jo’s research focuses on the evaluation and development of mental health interventions. Other areas of research interest include women’s mental health, neurodiversity, and eating disorders.
