I am an academic and clinical psychologist with expertise in co-occurring mental health conditions in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder. I have a particular interest in understanding the mechanisms of anxiety and depression in this population.

I returned to King’s in January 2020 following postdoctoral research at the University of Cambridge and working across several clinical services. I have recently set up the Translational Mental Health and Autism Group in the Department for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, which aims to translate mechanistic research into better clinical care for young people with autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions.

I work clinically in the Service for Complex Autism and Associated Neurodevelopmental Disorders at the Maudsley Hospital.
