My expertise and broader research interests are in developmental psychology and paediatric health services research, with a primary focus upon childhood visual disability. During my doctoral training I focused specifically on social-communicative and cognitive development of children born severely visually impaired and blind. As a postdoctoral research associate, my research interests have focused on the development and application of vision-related patient-reported outcome and experience measures (PROMs and PREMs) for children.
Currently, I am co-ordinating an interdisciplinary programme of research investigating the impact of visual impairment on children and young people who are visually impaired or blind, including the development of age-appropriate self-report measures of vision-related quality of life and functional vision of children and young people aged 6 – 18 years.
More recently, I have been involved in collaborative qualitative research on experience of illness in children with congenital heart defects and in patient and public involvement initiatives in development and routine application of measures that capture children and young people’s experience of illness and healthcare.
