Research Output per year
I joined Aston University as a lecturer in 2017, having spent the previous four years working at the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders as a research fellow and clinical psychologist.
My research focuses on understanding the development of mental health difficulties, and improving the identification of these difficulties, in people with intellectual disabilities and neurodevelopmental conditions. My research team are developing clinical assessment tools and interventions for minimally verbal individuals with intellectual disability and minimally verbal autistic children and adults.
I am passionate about dissemination of research findings to families and clinicians, and I am lead for an online resource that facilitates this process for people with rare genetic syndromes (www.findresources.co.uk).
