My current research interests lie in finding novel solutions to the development of psychosocial difficulties, primarily through understanding the influence of early experiences. Under supervision of Dr. Michelle St Clair and Dr. Charlotte Dack, my PhD project seeks to develop an online, parent-led intervention for children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD). The intervention will aim to increase prosocial behaviour, emotional recognition and regulation, as well as improve social communication skills and self-efficacy.
Prior to commencing this studentship, I worked principally in the evaluation of online and community-based interventions for anxiety disorders and depression. As such, I am interested in the way theoretical models can be used to plan and execute interventions.
Following my MSc (University of Amsterdam), I also worked in Addiction research at both Yale University and King’s College London, informing tobacco policy and regulation.
