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

I am a developmental psychologist and associate professor. My research explores the role of risky, promotive and protective environments in the longitudinal patterns of mental health and behaviour of typically-developing children and children with special educational needs. I use advanced quantitative techniques to analyse large-scale longitudinal data from complex surveys including multilevel modelling, structural equation modelling and missing data analysis and handling.

As the Departmental Graduate Tutor in the Psychology and Human Development department, I oversee admissions, academic progression and career development of our doctoral students as well as provide pastoral care. Before becoming an academic, I worked in educational policy and assessment in the USA.

Research Summary

My research explores the following:

1) The effects of the social and built environment on the emotional and behavioural problems of children;

2) The mental health of children with special educational needs across childhood and adolescence, particularly children with ADHD and autism; and

3) The role of biological factors in the association between life adversity and mental health across the lifecourse

Teaching Summary

I teach research methods and statistics to our undergraduate students on the BSc/BA Psychology with Education and I lead the Psychology Research Project module in year 3. 

I supervise the research projects of undergraduate, master's, PhD, EdD and Doctorate of Educational Psychology students.
