Research interests

My research is focused on elucidating mechanisms that underlie disturbed child development, and translating this into interventions to enhance children’s development and support families.

In particular, I am interested in looking at the influence of parents’ behaviours and mood on children’s cognitive and emotional development.

I would be very pleased to hear from final year undergraduate or master’s students, and trainee clinical and educational psychologists, who would be interested in conducting research in these areas.
