I joined CFR in October 2015 to work on the follow-up study of Gay father adoptive families, supervised by Professor Susan Golombok. I am also working towards my PhD which focuses on the specific outcomes for boys and girls of being raised in two-parent gay father, lesbian mother and heterosexual parent families. I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in July 2014 with first class BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology; my final year thesis project explored the possible positive outcomes of Adolescent risk-taking behaviour.
