Here at Cambridge Assessment I conduct research into various areas of education and assessment for different types and levels of study. I use a range of methods including statistical analyses, questionnaires, interviews and literature reviews. My projects have looked at marking reliability, progression to university, tiering at GCSE, gender differences, and comparisons between academic and vocational qualifications. I am currently researching effects of the recent reforms to AS/A Level on students and centres as well as analysing uptake of and performance in vocational qualifications.
I came to Cambridge Assessment from a psychology background, having completed a BSc in Psychology and a PhD in Experimental Psychology both from University College London. My PhD focused on the cognitive neuroscience of language processing.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with family and friends.
