Louise Marryat is a Research Fellow in Paediatric Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Learning Difficulties at the Salvesen Mindroom Centre Research Centre, based at the University of Edinburgh, UK. She is also a honorary Research Fellow in the Institute of Health and Wellbeing at the University of Glasgow. Louise holds a Ph.D. in Psychological Medicine from the University of Glasgow, a MA in Research Methods from Durham University, and a BA (hons.) in Politics and Sociology, also from Durham University. Louise’s work currently focusses on the use of longitudinal birth cohort data and linked routine data in order to answer questions around the long-term development of children born to mothers who use opioids; the early literacy skills of children with ASD; and Adverse Childhood Experiences and resilience.

Louise previously managed the Child Mental Health in Education project, which involves working with Glasgow City Council Education Services to collect longitudinal mental health data on all children in local authority funded schools at ages 4, 7, and 10. She has worked on the evaluations of Triple P parenting program and the Family Nurse Partnership pilot in Scotland, respectively. She also spent several years as a researcher working on the Growing Up in Scotland study, which is Scotland’s birth cohort study. Her research interests are around the development of maternal and child mental health and the use of longitudinal linked data.
