I am interested in the discovery of biomarkers of typical and atypical development, using primarily eye tracking and EEG methods. I specialise in large longitudinal datasets, often collected from multiple sites in different countries, with a focus on the harmonisation of stimulus presentation and data collection, as well as methods to combine and pool data from different age groups, recording centres and studies.
I have a particular research interest in basic sensory and attentional processing, stemming from a PhD in the visual allocation of attention during action planning and a post-doc investigating body representation and multisensory integration with Andy Bremner at the Goldsmiths InfantLab. I now spend much of my time based out of the Birkbeck Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development and the Kings College Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience on studies of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as well as projects investigating the developmental trajectory of brain function such as BRIGHT.
