I joined Cambridge University Press and Assessment in 2004, first working in the Cambridge Assessment English group then moving to the Research Division in 2012. I have worked on a number of projects including developing methods and metrics to monitor the quality of marking, examination comparability and research data management. My current interests include the moderation of school-based assessment and investigating the validity of comparative judgement. I am a University of Cambridge Data Champion, and am an EMCC accredited coach.
Prior to working at Cambridge University Press and Assessment, I taught English in Japan, the Czech Republic and the UK in both the private schools and business sectors. I hold a MA in Applied Linguistics from Anglia Ruskin University, a PGDip in Health Psychology from City University and a BSc in Psychology from the University of Stirling.
Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, doing house renovations, and a little bit of dancing. I volunteer for a medical charity and am a lay member of their research awards panel.
