Research Focus:
Gill's research generally reflects her background in developmental psychology. Current interests focus on cognitive functioning within a range of clinical populations, including children with autism and adult substance users. Gill is particularly interested in cognitive processes that impact on the capacity to function effectively in daily living. She is currently conducting research in the areas of future thinking, prospective memory and emotion processing.
