My first specialty is in childhood anxiety disorders, with a focus on how children acquire and reduce fear. This can contribute to our understanding of treatment as well as causes for early onset anxiety disorders. In addition, I'm also interested in parenting factors that affect childhood anxiety as well as parenting well-being.

My second research specialty is the gender bias in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) professions. Specifically, I'm interested in the causal factors that reduces the involvement of girls and women in STEM professions.

How does our health impact on the appearance of our faces and bodies, and how are these changes perceived by observers? Second, I am interested in the similarities and differences in face processing style between people from different ethnic groups and cultures. We know that people from different backgrounds look at faces in different ways, but to what extent does this reflect different cognitive processing styles?

My research focuses on the causes, consequences, and comorbidity of reading impairment. In terms of causes, I am interested in the role that distal (e.g., auditory processing, working memory) and proximal (visual word recognition, vocabulary) cognitive skills have on learning to read. In terms of consequences, I am interested in how poor reading interacts with people's emotional health. In terms of comorbidity, I am interesting in how reading impairment and spoken language impairment overlap in terms of causes and consequences. I investigate these questions using behavioural techniques (e.g., psychophysics, eye-tracking, pen-and-paper tests) and neurophysiological techniques (e.g., event-related potentials, fixation-related potentials).

Brain mechanisms of attention, visual perception, cognitive control, and autism.

To cope with the changing world around us, our brains must constantly adapt themselves - reconfiguring an incredibly complex system moment by moment, in order to produce flexible behaviour. I develop and use innovative brain imaging techniques to examine this processes, focusing on the way in which critical frontal and parietal brain regions process different types of information. I am also interested in using brain imaging to study language abilities in children with Autism who do not yet speak. I use neuroimaging (fMRI, MEG and EEG) and behavioural techniques.

I am interested in the development of memory and emotion skills across the lifespan. My research focuses primarily on children's acquisition of autobiographical memory, on the way in which emotion skills (e.g. recognition of emotions, emotion regulation, emotional perspective taking) develop alongside memory skills, and on the way in which these memory and emotion skills develop throughout the school years and into late adulthood. I focus in particular on how parents, teachers, and, later on, partners and children can help promote this development.
