Biography

Background

My background is in Psychology (MA, University of Cambridge; PhD, King’s College London). My doctoral project investigated the prevalence, behavioural phenotype and impact on the family of Down syndrome and comorbid autism. As a postdoctoral research fellow at the Dartington Social Research Unit, I managed several randomised trials of behavioural interventions and developed novel methods for evaluating social work for children. I was also the Co-Editor of the Journal for Children’s Services. Prior to joining CHAP, I worked at Autistica – the UK’s leading autism research charity.
