Research interests

I am a Reader in child and adolescent clinical psychology, in Department of Psychology. My research is in the area of child trauma, with a specific focus on complex trauma and young people in care.

My work spans basic science through to implementation, with a specific focus on (i) cognitive and social mechanisms associated with mental health and wellbeing following childhood trauma or maltreatment, (ii) the translation of this evidence to testing novel cognitive-behavioural based intervention programmes, and (iii) the cross-sector implementation of existing evidence-based mental health interventions. My work has covered multiple groups of trauma-exposed young people, both in the UK and internationally (primarily South Africa), including those exposed to acute trauma (e.g., road traffic accidents, assault), community violence, and maltreatment and broader adversity.
