I joined KCL as staff member in Autumn 2017 after completing my PhD at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. My interest is in the area of neurodevelopment condition such as autism spectrum disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG). I have a PhD in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
