Georgia's research interests lie in neurodevelopment, culture and autism, global mental health, women's mental health and neuro-ethics. Her current Wellcome Trust funded fellowship focuses on the interface between developmental neuroscience and public health, and specifically in the translation of neuroscientific methods into global mental health to improve identification of children with developmental disorders in low-resource settings. Her research interests extend to the impact and intersection between socio-economic factors, culture and autism, and barriers to diagnosis in low-resource settings. To read her papers and book chapters in these areas, please see her Google Scholar profile.
