Interests

I am in the planning stages of my PhD, supervised by Dr Sara Baker; we are currently looking for a second supervisor with expertise in ADHD and stress. I will use Bayesian statistical analysis to examine potential causal links between stressors and ADHD over developmental time, using an existing large longitudinal cohort dataset (specific dataset to be confirmed). I will focus part of the analysis on stressors that relate specifically to school/educational experiences, and hope to follow-up with qualitative interviews from a selection of cohort members.
