Jo Moss is a lecturer at the University of Surrey and an honorary Research Fellow at the ICN, UCL. She’s also the DevDivLab’s main collaborator. Jo’s research focuses on autism and social skills in individuals with genetic syndromes and intellectual disability.
Jo is particularly interested in the prevalence, nature and developmental course of autism spectrum phenomenology in these populations and in identifying biological and social-cognitive causal pathways that might explain variable ASD presentations within and between syndrome groups. She also has an interest in understanding broader autism phenotype traits and mental health in women with the Fragile X premutation.
Jo completed her PhD at the University of Birmingham and continued to follow a career in research within the field of neurodevelopmental disorders at St George’s Hospital (UoL), the Institute of Psychiatry (KCL) and the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders (University of Birmingham). She also holds honorary contracts at the University of Birmingham and at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL. In October 2019, Jo took up a lectureship at the University of Surrey.
