Research Themes

Together with Essi Viding I co-direct the Developmental Risk and Resilience Unit at UCL. Our research focuses on early adversity and behavioural problems in childhood. My research uses brain imaging and psychological approaches to investigate the mechanisms associated with developmental adversity and resilience. I am particularly interested in the impact of maltreatment on children’s emotional development and their future mental health.
