Dr Bonnie Auyeung
Bonnie Auyeung is a researcher at the University's Autism Research Centre, where her primary research examines the effects of prenatal hormones on psychological and neural postnatal development. This includes conducting long term studies with children and adolescents, whose progress has been monitored since the early stages of their mother's pregnancy. These studies aim to provide a better understanding of the role of hormones in human development, in particular the development of Autism Spectrum Conditions. This work is funded by the UK Medical Research Council.
Prior to her current role, Bonnie completed her PhD at the University of Cambridge in 2008. Before joining Cambridge, Bonnie was a graduate researcher at the University of California (Los Angeles), where she also taught graduate level courses in research methodology and statistical analysis. Her research took place through the Early Childhood Partial Hospitalization Program at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute and focused on development of observational measures for young children.
