I am a research assistant on the START (Supporting Toddlers with a family history of autism/ADHD to develop strong Attention, Regulation, and Thinking skills) project. The programme is developed for toddlers with a family connection to autism or ADHD. Previous research indicates that these kids may benefit from additional support to promote the development of executive functions, in particular, strong attention, regulation, and thinking process. Studies indicate that strong executive functions are linked to better mental health and higher quality of life. The programme aims to support all children, whether they are neurodivergent or neurotypical.
Prior to joining Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford, I completed my MRes at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL. I have also worked with children and young adults with special educational needs (e.g. autism or ADHD).
