I joined Cambridge University Press & Assessment ARD in October 2022. I am a mixed-methods researcher with a broad range of interests in educational assessment. I am currently involved in several research projects, one of which investigates the effects of COVID-19 pandemic on high stakes assessments in several jurisdictions.
Prior to joining the ARD team, I worked as a research assistant at the Department of Linguistics and English Language, Lancaster University. I was involved in several research projects, including linking a suite of English language speaking tests to an external framework and researching the needs and use of English in the workplace in Sri Lanka.
I have a master’s degree in English Language Teaching with a specialism in Testing and Assessment from the University of Warwick. I am currently finishing my PhD in Linguistics at Lancaster University. My PhD research investigates the scoring of integrated reading-into-writing performance using analytic rating scales. I currently serve as a postgraduate research network officer for the UK Association for Language Testing and Assessment (UKALTA).
When I am not working or doing my PhD, I enjoy spending time with friends, baking and playing badminton.
