PhD student, Centre for Family Research, UK
I joined CFR in October 2015 to work as a Research Assistant on the follow-up study of adoptive gay father, lesbian mother and heterosexual parent families, supervised by Professor Susan Golombok. I am also working towards my PhD which focuses on the development of adopted children raised in diverse family forms and the factors which influence child wellbeing, including family process variables (e.g. parent-child relationships), family structure variables (e.g. parent sexual orientation) and external factors (e.g. stigma).
- New family forms
- Child and adolescent adjustment
