I joined Cambridge Assessment’s Research Division in 2006, where my main areas of interest are the application of multi-level models in analysing assessment data, and the analysis of patterns of uptake and attainment in schools and colleges.
My recent projects have included an investigation into the effect of taking the Extended Project Qualification on performance in other qualifications, the impact on qualification uptake of the introduction of the UK government’s Progress 8 performance measure, and an analysis of which GCSE subjects students are most likely to achieve their best grade in.
I have a BSc in Economics and Politics from the University of East Anglia and an MSc in Applied Statistics from Sheffield Hallam University.
My main interests outside of work include reading, playing 5-a-side football, going to gigs, and entertaining my 6 year old daughter. I am also a governor at my daughter’s school.
