Research Interests:

My research focus is the neurodevelopment in autism, particularly in infancy. I am currently working with data collected by the BASIS network ( - a longitudinal cohort study investigating the early development of autism in infants with a high familial likelihood of autism. Specifically, I am investigating associations between the pupillary light reflex and sensory behaviours in infants 5-24 months, and whether these associations differ between infants with and without a later diagnosis of autism. 

My PhD is funded by the Centre for Social Genetic Developmental Psychiatry housed at King's College London.
