Cambridge Public Health


My research intersects medicine and psychology, I am interested in bioligical and social aspects of the environment that engender risk and support resilience over children's developmental course. Populations I work with include families formed through assisted reproduction technologies (ARTs), families where a family member or more has autism (and co-morbid circumstances such as preterm birth or older siblings with austism), and families where anxiety is prevalent.
I am particularly interested in parental stress, mother and father sensitivity, child attachment, parent and child anxiety, and social development through infancy, childhood and adolescence.
