Amber completed her PhD in the ARC investigating how fetal and pubertal hormones affect the structural development of the brain, and conducted the first meta-analysis of sex differences in the brain.

She was awarded the William Binks Fellowship in Autism Neuroscience to support her postdoc where she investigates neural sex differences in white matter connectivity in autistic males and females using DWI (Diffusion Weighted Imaging). This work is done in collaboration with the Institute of Psychiatry in Kings College London as part of the UK MRC AIMS study, which was funded by the MRC. Amber also coordinates data collection and data management for the Cambridge Child Development Study, funded by the MRC, the Wellcome Trust, and ART and works on the EU-AIMS Longitudinal European Autism Project (LEAP). Amber also works as a Task Lead on the Stakeholder Engagement Work Package of the AIMS-2-TRIALS project (Autism Innovative Medicine Studies-2-Trials), the largest ever autism research grant awarded.
