David Mason

Research Assistant (Interviewer)


I have been working on an observational research study looking at the psychometric properties of the WHOQoL-BREF for use with autistic people.

Currently I am looking at how to measure anxiety in autistic people, and autistic people with intellectual disability. Also, I am working on a study to design an intervention to improve the healthcare access of older autistic people.

My current research interests are:

Autism; Quality of Life; Well-being (eudaimonic or hedonic), and psychometrics
