Research interests
My current research interests are related to the fields of developmental psychology, disability studies and autism. My work has primarily examined the construction of autism, drawing on politics of diversity and difference, and my most recent work has explored concepts of space and the challenges between ‘autistic’ and ‘neurodiverse’ spaces.
