I'm a PhD student working in Duncan Astle's lab on a longitudinal study of child development. I'm broadly interested in how the environment influences the brain, behaviour and cognition, and how these lead to downstream effects on the lives of children. I'm also interested in research methods, in particular the application of statistics and research synthesis methods to study complex developmental processes.
