Margaret Nampijja

Developmental Psychologist (MBChB, MUK; PhD, Lancaster University, UK)

I am a Medical Doctor and highly qualified and experienced Developmental Psychologist working at the level of a senior scientist. I have led and collaborated with colleagues on several studies looking at neurocognitive effects of early infections (e.g. worms, malaria), neonatal encephalopathy, the home environment, maternal infections and depression during pregnancy in Ugandan infants and children. I have also adapted and translated western cognitive measures for Ugandan children.

I am supporting the CHAIN project as a developmental psychologist, providing expert advice and skills on the neurodevelopmental sub-study, including development of psychometric tools and manuals, training and supervising the assessment team, administering the tests, and applying performance data to address the study questions. I have also contributed to some of the core aspects of the study e.g. developing/reviewing the protocol and I am keen on participating in writing manuscripts from this work. I am extremely motivated to work with this very enthusiastic research team.
