ESRC FRL Fellow, King's College London

I am an ESRC fellow based at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London. My work focuses on the impact of early adversity on children's emotions, behaviour and mental health. In particular, my aim is to identify how stressful experiences can alter children's biology in a way that can influence long-term health and development, so as to improve current strategies for helping children and their families.
