About Me

I am a neuropsychologist and developmental cognitive neuroscientist working as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University Hospital of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy. My research aims to achieve a deeper understanding of brain-cognition/behaviour interactions in typically and atypically developing children and adolescents. I am interested in early childhood adversity and biological or environmental precursors of developmental difficulties as well as mental health problems. Some of my recent research has centred on possible benefits of interventions to improve long-term neurodevelopment. I use a combination of measures, including neuropsychological, behavioural and clinical assessments as well as neuroimaging.
