My DPhil work focuses on using data from longitudinal birth cohort studies to conceptualise adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) under the dimensions of threat and deprivation. Specifically, I am investigating how neurobiological mechanisms and protective factors interact to influence the impact of ACEs on risk for psychopathology, with a particular focus on children’s emotion regulation and executive function as the underlying mechanisms. My current doctoral work forms part of the Moving Beyond Inequality programme funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which aims to reduce social inequalities by addressing the biological embedding of social adversity during the early years.
