Research topic: Traumatic Brain Injury and socioemotional processing in a young offending population
I am currently researching prevalence and consequences of traumatic brain injury in adolescent and young adults with offending behaviour. My research investigates the neurocognitive and neuroaffective profiles of those with and without injury in the criminal justice system, focusing particularly on the capacity for socioemotional processing and facial affect recognition. We are also investigating these profiles in members of the general population and exploring whether deficits can be addressed using digital intervention strategies in prison settings.
