Sarah White - Principal Investigator

Sarah’s research is concerned with understanding how the autistic mind processes and represents information, with a particular focus on implicit mentalizing. She’s especially interested in how these cognitive differences might effect other aspects of cognition and mental health in autism, and in autistic cognition in the Fragile X Premutation and Broader Autism Phenotype.

Sarah received her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Physiology from Oxford University, and completed her PhD in 2006 at UCL with Uta Frith and Elisabeth Hill. She currently holds a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellowship and, prior to this, a British Academy postdoctoral fellowship and an MRC/ESRC postdoctoral fellowship.
