Ishita Chowdhury awarded PhD

Posted · Author

​Congratulations to Ishita for passing her PhD viva in 2023! Ishita originally joined the Developmental Diversity Lab as a research assistant in 2017. During her time as a PhD student, supervised by Dr Sarah White, she studied how deception detection abilities change throughout development and if this might be an area of difficulty for autistic individuals. She also explored how these abilities might be related to mentalizing, bullying, and mental health. Ishita is now a Lecturer at University of Surrey, but she continues to collaborate with the DevDivLab at UCL.
