Overview

Mary Cleaton is a Postdoctoral Research Associate with a strong interest in public health, child health, education and equity. She gained her PhD from the University of Cambridge, studying genomic imprinting and fetal development. After a brief period teaching Science at secondary schools in south-east Wales, she returned to academic research. Her work currently focuses on Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Traumatic Brain Injury in disadvantaged populations, including looked-after and excluded children and offenders.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Neurodiversity, including Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Traumatic Brain Injury.
  • Disadvantaged populations, including Looked After Children, children excluded from school and offenders.

Qualifications

BSc (Hons): Biomedical Science, Cardiff University.

PhD: epigenetics and fetal development, University of Cambridge.

PGCE (Secondary): Biology with Science, Cardiff Metropolitan University.
