Together with Essi Viding I co-direct the Developmental Risk and Resilience Unit at UCL. Our research focuses on early adversity and behavioural problems in childhood, particularly conduct disorder using imaging, cognitive and genetic approaches. I have a particular interest in studying affective processing and potential neural markers of resilience in the context of childhood maltreatment.
Within the Research Department of Clinical Educational and Health Psychology I manage the portfolio of UCL programmes that we deliver at the Anna Freud Centre. These include the: MSc in Developmental Psychology and Clinical Practice; MSc in Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology; MSc in CBT for Children and Young People; MSc in Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology; and the Child IAPT Diploma.
