The Waterloo Foundation Research Fellow

Available for postgraduate supervision

Overview

I am a Waterloo Foundation Fellow in the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute and Wales Autism Research Centre. I co-lead the GW4 Neurodevelopmental Neurodiversity Network across Cardiff, Bath, Bristol and Exeter. 

My research investigates a/typical development in neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g., autism, ADHD) across the lifespan, using a variety of approaches. I am particularly interested in why people with neurodevelopmental conditions have such diverse experiences and outcomes (e.g., in mental health). I also study a/typical social cognition in young people and adults, with a particular focus on 'theory on mind' (the ability to understand other people's mental states).

My research papers can be found under 'Publications'. You find me on Twitter here.
