Research Summary

I am a developmental psychologist and behavioural geneticist, with diverse research and applied experience, including working and collaborating with educational psychologists, child psychiatrists and practitioners. My work focuses on children’s socio-emotional development, psychological adjustment and mental health, with specific emphasis on the role of family and school. I am passionate about the need to assimilate scientific approaches, in particular considering methods that facilitate detailed understanding of family relationships in large-scale studies, consideration of individual differences in development and in intervention response, as well as ways to improve reach, scale and diversity in clinical research.
