My main research interest lies in understanding how the early environment shapes the developing brain. I am particularly interested in how early adversity, as is frequently experienced by children in low- and middle-income countries, affects their developmental outcomes. I completed my PhD in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, examining infant neurocognitive development in context of poverty-related risk in a cohort in rural Gambia, West Africa. Upon completion of my PhD in 2019, I joined the Centre for Family Research as a postdoctoral research associate working with Professor Claire Hughes.
