Personal profile


My research interests centre around parent child interactions and the evaluation of psychosocial interventions aimed at improving outcomes for children and young people. Of particular interest is how adversity affects family processes and the impact on familial and child outcomes. I am experienced in both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, and have worked on a range of evaluations of interventions, aimed at improving the psychological, social, cognitive and educational outcomes for both parents and children.
