My main area of research is the role of early nutrition in neurodevelopment, with the goal of optimising the development and functioning of the brain. I also investigate other factors that contribute to neurodevelopment and predictors of child development, particularly in disadvantaged children. Available to supervise Honours, Masters and PhD level psychology students.
