Emeline Han

Emeline Han, PhD student at CRAE.

Emeline joined CRAE as a PhD student in September 2020. . Emeline’s PhD research aims to: (1) systematically review the literature on autistic people’s experiences of stigma and coping strategies; (2) develop a stigma-related support programme for autistic adults using a participatory approach; (3) conduct an initial evaluation of the feasibility and acceptability of this programme. She is supervised by Laura Crane and Katrina Scior.

Emeline has a background in public health research. She completed her MSc in Global Health and Development at UCL before working as a research assistant at the National University of Singapore. One of the projects she led on was a qualitative study examining the provision of autism services and supports in Singapore from the perspectives of service providers, autistic adults, and parents of autistic children. 

Emeline hopes to continue conducting research that is participatory in nature and will have a meaningful impact on the lives of autistic people.
