Emma Walland

I hold a BA (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Johannesburg and a MA in Social and Psychological Research from the University of the Witwatersrand. I also completed a PGDip in Management at Wits Business School.

My research interests have been broad and varied; most recently, I completed a research project on the lived experiences of people with a brain injury who live in long-term care facilities. I have also conducted research evaluating the MA in Community-Based Counselling Psychology at the University of the Witwatersrand. My BA (Hons) research was on the relationship between effortful control and counterproductive work behaviour.


Since joining Cambridge University Press and Assessment, I have been involved in research investigating the decoupling of the AS and A level and establishing an analyst community for SAS.


In my spare time I enjoy playing computer games, reading novels, being in nature and spending time with friends and family.
