Research interests

  • Jana's work focusses on the impact of early experience on development. She is particularly interested in the role of relationship experiences, especially caregiver-child and peer/friend relationships, in typical and atypical development. Jana studies factors that influence relationship experiences as well as the effects and correlates of such relationship experiences on children’s development. Jana uses this knowledge to inform the development of relationship-based interventions to promote children and young people’s wellbeing. Her research has been funded by the ESRC, NIHR, the Waterloo Foundation and the Welcome Trust. Jana's research uses both quantitative and qualitative methods. She has extensive experience conducting longitudinal research across childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. Jana is currently involved in a range of interdisciplinary collaborations which span Psychiatry, Paediatric Neurology, Psychology, Education, Social Work, Public Policy, and Law.
