I am working in research psychology, specialising in neuroimaging research. I have a special interest in using neuroimaging to identify neurological vulnerability, particularly in relation to trauma or developmental disorders.  I am currently investigating neuro-correlates of trauma related to the Canterbury Earthquakes, funded by the Neurological Foundation.  I have recently completed the neuroimaging analysis for a randomised controlled trial of vitamin-mineral treatment of ADHD in children and the imaging component of very preterm baby study.  I have previously been involved in a resilience psychology in schools project for sub clinical emotional difficulties in young children.
