Biography

My PhD work (completed at KCL) focused on delineating neurocognitive risk and protective factors for mental health problems in autistic individuals, with the hope this would inform the design of better targeted interventions. I have recently been awarded a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship to study pathways of brain and cognitive development that may underpin the emergence of core symptoms and emotional and behavioural problems in children with autism spectrum disorder. I have experience collecting and analysing EEG and neuropsychological data from developmentally disordered populations.
