Here at Cambridge University Press and Assessment, I conduct research into various areas of education. I focus primarily on exploring questions about qualifications and assessments, especially ones that are used by secondary school learners. I use a range of quantitative and qualitative methods such as systematic literature reviews, document analysis, interviews, questionnaires etc – it all depends on the nature of the research question.
I came to Cambridge University Press and 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.
