  • Associate Professor
  • IOE - Psychology & Human Development
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am a developmental psychologist and associate professor with primary interests in the developmental processes that bring about child behaviour and mental health problems including the role of the home environment (parenting) and the wider (neighbourhood and school) environment. My research explores these patterns longitudinally in general population samples of children and their families including children with neurodevelopmental conditions (autism and ADHD). 

I completed my PhD at the UCL Institute of Education in the Centre for Longitudinal Studies in 2012 and I have been based in the Psychology and Human Development department since then as a postdoc then lecturer. Before becoming an academic, I worked in education assessment and policy in New York City. 

As the Departmental Graduate Tutor, I oversee admissions, academic progression and career development of our doctoral students as well as provide pastoral care. I am also involved in research on doctoral student mental health. 

Research Summary

I have interests in the following:

  • Parenting and child behaviour, including bidirectional processes
  • The mental health of children with neurodevelopmental conditions
  • The built environment and child behaviour
  • Environmental chaos including noise and child behaviour
  • Access to mental health services and long-term outcomes

I am looking to recruit new PhD students linked to our research in Nurture Lab and Cubic Lab . Please get in touch if you 1) have a master’s in psychology with strong academic background, 2) enjoy academic writing and 3) have strong quantitative skills. PhDs are likely self-funded but we can explore funding options. Application process: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/research-degrees/applying-graduate-research-study-ucl
