My courses


I joined CHAP as a researcher in 2018. 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, neurodevelopmental disorders, learning disability, and social work for children.


I am currently managing an evaluation of Teaching Recovery Techniques - a community group therapy intervention for refugee children, youth and families reporting symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
