Research summary

My research aims to assess children’s strengths and difficulties using the RDoC theoretical framework. I will be using observational, experimental and psychophysiological techniques to focus on socio-emotional and behavioural domains. In particular, I am interested in the relationship between empathy and theory of mind in children with neurodevelopmental problems.
