Currently a PhD student at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, my research investigates the ways in which adversity influences neurodevelopment, and how the interaction between genetic, neural, environmental, and cognitive mechanisms promote resilience in children facing adversity. My work is supervised by Dr. Duncan Astle, and is funded by the Medical Research Council.
