Guy Skinner

I am an experienced mixed methods practitioner with a particular interest in using linked data, longitudinal approaches, systematic reviews and meta-analyses. I also currently hold a Visiting Researcher position at the Institute of Public Health, University of Cambridge.

I studied for my MPhil in Social and Developmental Psychology at the Applied Developmental Psychology Group, University of Cambridge, investigating the developmental issues of cross examination within cases of alleged child abuse.

I was then was appointed as a Research Assistant at the Cambridge Institute of Public Health under Dr Robbie Duschinsky. Here, I investigated parenting interventions and their use in mediating early child development in varying contexts.

I subsequently gained my PhD in Psychological Criminology at the University of Cambridge, where I conducted research exploring the associations between criminal careers and health. During my PhD I also worked as a Research Analyst within the Science, Research and Evidence Directorate at the Department for Health and Social Care.

I joined the Research and Development Unit as a post-doctoral researcher in 2021, working on both the ‘Watch Me Play!’ intervention and a Nuffield Foundation project investigating the association between poverty and child abuse and neglect.
