I am member of the core team of the NIHR’s ARC East of England at Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, with links to the Inclusive Involvement in Research for Practice-Lead Health and Social Care (IIRP) Theme, as well as the CIDDRG. My research interests reflect my academic background in psychology and criminology and my professional and personal experiences as a clinical and forensic psychologist with men and women with intellectual and/or other developmental disabilities.
At present, my main interests lie:
- at the intersection of clinical and legal studies, with recent studies focussing on both legally significant and everyday decision-making by people with intellectual and/or other developmental disabilities (particularly autism spectrum conditions), particularly in the context of the criminal justice system;
- in ‘regression’ or dementia in people with Down Syndrome,
- in service provision for, and responses to, adults with intellectual disabilities and mental health needs and/or behavioural difficulties that place them at extreme risk of exclusion and vulnerability.
I am also an Affiliated Lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry, and a Tutor and Fellow of Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge.
