Project Role

Research Interests

I am interested in the developmental mechanisms that mediate between social experiences in the family and childhood emotional and behavioural development.I have focused especially on early attachment behaviour as a model system for understanding social influences on children’s development and for investigating the developmental processes that connect normative development to risk for psychopathology. I am also interested in the role played by genes, gene-environment interactions and gene-environment correlations in children’s development; and the interfaces between biology, cognition and emotion that might help shed light on the underlying mechanisms of social and emotional risk.
