Dr Lucia Valmaggia BSc, MSc, PhD
 
I work as Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London where I lead the Virtual Reality Lab, and I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust. 
 
In my career to date I have sought to conduct research, which is clinically relevant and directly applicable to the delivery of clinical services. My work has focused on the prevention and early detection of mental health problems, in particular psychosis. I have extensive experience in service implementation in the community and I set up the first service for prevention and early detection of psychosis in a prison setting. I conduct experimental studies using virtual reality to explore the effects of adverse life experiences on the appraisal of social situations. I lead clinical studies to evaluate virtual reality assisted assessment and treatment
 
As President-Elect of the IEPA-Early Intervention in Mental Health Association I endeavour to find ways to increase a dialogue between clinicians, service users, carers, and researchers. This will inform core questions regarding the prevention of mental health problems as well as improve service provision, treatment options and long-term outcomes.
