ALVH&NSK I am a Rubicon Research Fellow at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge and a Fellow at Lucy Cavendish College. From November 2016, I will be a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow.

I investigate the effects of early life experiences on cognition and the brain in childhood and adolescence with the aim to better understand why some individuals develop mental health problems, and others do not.
