Joyce is a research associate with the AIMS-2-TRIALS project where she co-facilitates a group of autism representatives across Europe who provide input into key aspects of the project. Joyce is also conducting research around autism service pathways and best practice with the autism community across the EU. Findings will be used to inform future EU policies with a view to improving service accessibility and standards for autism-specific and mainstream services for autistic people.
Joyce completed her PhD at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia where she investigated psychologists’ adherence to best practice standards when working with individuals with intellectual disabilities and co-occurring mental health conditions and the service experiences of carers. She is the recipient of the 2018 Australian Psychological Society, Psychology of Intellectual Disability and Autism Thesis Award.
Prior to her current role, Joyce worked as a clinical psychologist in government and non-government disability agencies in Australia, primarily with people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism for the past 12 years.
