Personal profile

Research interests

Recent research My lab's research interests focuses on assessment, characterisation and intervention within the theme of wellbeing and social/interpersonal skills with a focus on autism. Our work includes conceptualisation and measurement of concepts such depression and social/interpersonal skills, and what impact social/interpersonal skills have on quality of life and wellbeing. Individuals on the autism spectrum are particularly at risk of depression and anxiety. We are interested in studying the differences in the way that people think and how this can explain different behaviours.
