I am am PhD candidate supervised by Dr Nicole Nelson and Dr Amanda Taylor. I am also part of the Develop Well lab at the University of Adelaide.

My interests lie in developmental and child psychology, mental health, and individual differences. I have a particular interest in neurodevelopmental and mental health conditions, especially autism and anxiety disorders.

My research investigates how autism and social anxiety impact children's understanding and perception of, and engagement in, social-emotional environments. I aim to promote better understanding of the reciprocity of social interactions, and further integrate the perspectives of autistic and anxious children into research.
