Lecturer in Psychology
Birmingham B4 7ET
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 disorders. I am currently beginning a programme of work to develop clinical assessment tools for minimally verbal individuals with intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder.
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).
