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.
My research interests are child and adolescent mental health, refugee children and young people, neurodevelopmental disorders, learning disability, and social work for children.
- An evaluation of Teaching Recovery Techniques - a community group therapy intervention for refugee children, youth and families reporting symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder
- Developing effective support services for refugee women who have experienced sexual and gender based violence
- Adaptation and pilot test of the Healthier Wealthier Families model in Sweden to mitigate child poverty
I currently supervise Masters and PhD students and welcome enquiries about supervision from students who want to write a dissertation in any area of my research interests.
