Eloise is currently studying for her DPhil in Psychiatry at the University of Oxford. Her research explores the neural, attentional and behavioural mechanisms underlying parent-infant interaction and particularly face processing. This research also has a specific focus upon parent-infant interaction in the context of craniofacial abnormality such as cleft lip, and the development of interventions to support these families. She has particular interests in autism, specifically autism in women, and autism and mental health, as well as perinatal mental health in mothers and fathers, wellbeing and eudaimonia, and she has also completed research exploring the neural dynamics of post-traumatic stress.
Eloise Stark examines a recent qualitative study that looks into compensatory strategies in autism. An online questionnaire asked a wide range of participants to self-report their use and experiences of compensatory strategies. The findings are illuminating.
