I'm interested in a broad range of areas, including neuroscience, statistics, and political philosophy. My particular expertise is in the use of quantitative methods within an inter-disciplinary research environment to help combine knowledge from different fields. For my PhD in Criminology at the University of Cambridge, I drew from ideas in neuroscience, behavioural economics, and evolutionary psychology to create and test a new theory of criminal behaviour, the Retribution and Reciprocity Model.

My work at Cambridge Assessment is wide ranging and takes place across multiple strands and teams. I'm currently studying Equality, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (EDIB) with the aim of improving current assessment and education provision. I also organise the Special Interest Group in quantitative methods.

Outside of work I enjoy rowing and cycling.
