Personal profile

Research interests

I am the director of the Statistical Analysis of NeuroDevelopment and Psychopathology in Infants and Toddlers (SANDPIT) lab. Our research applies statistical modelling to characterise typical and atypical developmental pathways. More details can be found on our lab website: https://www.sandpitlab.co.uk/.

Broadly my research falls into two main areas 1) risk and resilience in developmental disorders, including Autism Spectrum Condition, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and Callous Unemotional traits; and 2) understanding the impact of screen time, and specifically touchscreen use, on cognitive development in infants and toddlers.

I will be accepting new PhD students from October 2021
