    I would be happy to speak to any potential PhD students who have an interest in sleep and behaviour, particularly in individuals with intellectual disability or genetic syndromes.

    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My primary research interests are sleep difficulties, self-injury and other negative outcomes for people with intellectual disability, and the impact these have on their caregivers.

    In particular, I am interested in developing more inclusive methods of assessment for clinically relevant outcomes in people with intellectual disability (e.g. sleep, pain, behaviour).
