My Work

We are interested in early life exposures and the effect on the developing brain. This includes perinatal brain injury: hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy, pre-term birth, intra-uterine growth restriction, maternal immune activation.

Potential Projects

We are currently focusing on three main areas:
Prediction of outcome following hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy
Effects of maternal immune activation on the developing brain, ASD, and life time risk of psychopathology
Early detection of learning and executive function deficits using touchscreen based computerised assessments of cognitive ability in pre-school children
