I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the UNSW School of Psychology, working with Dr Susanne Schweizer in the Developmental Affective Science Lab. My research investigates the risk and resilience pathways to mental health outcomes in children and adolescents. In particular, I am interested in understanding the role of cognitive and affective processes in the development of psychopathology in young people. Prior to joining UNSW, I completed my PhD and worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford in the Oxford Centre for Emotions and Affective Neuroscience Lab, with Professor Elaine Fox.
Dr Annabel Songco has successfully received two Early Career Academic awards from the UNSW Faculty of Science. Thanks to the UNSW Science ECAN Small Seeding Grant Scheme and the Early Career Academic COVID-19 Scheme, the funding has helped Annabel to develop a research program in child and adolescent global mental health.
