Start date: September 2015

Research topic: The experiences of young carers: towards an understanding of psychophysiological resilience

Broadly speaking, my research is investigating the impact of caregiving at a young age from a biopsychosocial and a resiliency perspective. Ultimately, I am attempting to identify coping factors which may contribute to positive adjustment and determine whether this has an impact upon physiological health.
