Dr. Rose McGranahan is a Postdoctoral Research Associate working on the NEON (Narrative Experiences Online) study, which aims to examine the effect of on-line recovery narratives on people with mental health problems.

Rose graduated in 2009 with a BSc in Psychology from the University of Sussex. After working for two years she returned to education and completed an MRes in 2012, again at the University of Sussex.

Rose then went on to complete an ESRC-funded PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London. Rose's doctoral work focused on social relationships, well-being and motivation. Her PhD drew on the Michelangelo process, which is based on the idea that affirming partners can help people move towards their ideal self. Using advanced quantitative methods, Rose conducted a longitudinal school-based study exploring how affirmation processes influence goal pursuit and well-being, and the role that self-esteem plays in these relationships.

Whilst finishing her PhD, Rose pursued her interest in clinical work by starting work as a researcher at the Institute of Social and Community Psychiatry at QMUL on the QuEST project, a NIHR-funded programme grant comparing different forms of supported accommodation for people with mental health problems. She then transferred to her current role as a researcher on NEON.
