Bonnie Auyeung is Reader and Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Edinburgh where her work is focused around two central themes: 1) the role of prenatal factors on psychological and neural postnatal development and 2) interventions to alleviate the symptoms of developmental difficulties. Prior to her current role, Bonnie worked at the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge where she remains Director of Psychoneuroendocrinology. Before joining Cambridge, Bonnie was a graduate researcher at the University of California (Los Angeles). Her research took place through the Early Childhood Partial Hospitalization Program at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute and focused on development of attention measures for young children.
Bonnie is also the School Knowledge Exchange and Impact Director.
