Dr Sania Shakoor

Senior Lecturer

About

My research has focused on integrating longitudinal and genetically sensitive methodologies to identify developmental mechanisms and pathways underlying child and adolescent psychopathology amongst vulnerable individuals. Specifically my work has addressed risk factors associated with being involved in bullying, antisocial behaviours, developing mental health problems and psychotic experiences. More recently my research interests have evolved into investigating victimisation in adulthood in the form of intimate partner violence.
