I am a Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Wellcome research fellow in the Developmental Risk and Resilience Unit at University College London. Through my fellowship, I am also affiliated with the Laboratory of NeuroGenetics at Duke University. My current research uses computational methods (e.g. computational modelling, psychophysics) to examine affective processing. I am interested in how individual differences in diverse factors such as early life experiences and neurobiological mechanisms give rise to (or protect us from) the development of mental health problems and am particularly interested in developing more sensitive measures of individual differences to study how behavioural traits such as anxiety and conduct problems develop across childhood and adolescence.
I co-convene the Health & Clinical Psychology module (PSYC0015) for the 2nd Year BSc Psychology programme. I also contribute to teaching and supervision on UCL's Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, as well as the MSc in Psychological Sciences.
