Research worker/PhD student on the BIPP study (Brain, Immunity and Psychopathology following Very Preterm Birth study).

Research Interests

  • Investigating underlying functional connectivity alterations associated with socio-emotional difficulties following very preterm birth
  • Identifying distinct behavioural and neurobiological subgroups of preterm children using machine learning clustering analyses in order to parse heterogeneity not captured by diagnosis driven labels.


  • I have a Neuroscience (BSc) and Psychiatric Research (MSc) background. I am particularly interested in identifying predictive biomarkers of mental health outcomes and trajectories using neuroimaging and machine learning approaches.
