My research is focused on maternal cognition in post-natal depression, particularly the impact of attentional processes on mothers' responsivity to infant cues. I am also interested in whether cognitive training procedures can be used to improve maternal responsivity.
My research is funded by the Wellcome Trust, and supervised by Professor Alan Stein and Professor Elaine Fox.
I trained as a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Manchester and continue to work clinically alongside my research.
