Research interests

My research mainly centres around children's language development and executive function development (including prospective memory). My approach is interdisciplinary as I am interested in the way in which these abilities interact in development in both typically developing children and in children with impairment such as language disorder and autistic spectrum disorder). A new project investigates strategies for assessments of similarity and differences in autistic and neurotypical populations(adult). My interests extend to qualitative analysis from a clinical perspective (language assessment, understanidng experiences of parents with children with autism) and health (adherence to medication).
