I am a social scientist and lecturer in the Educational Psychology Group, Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology. I have a background in informatics and psychology, holding a PhD (University of Edinburgh, 2009) in how reasoning processes vary along the broader autism spectrum; an MSc (also from Edinburgh, 2005) in Neuroinformatics; and a BEng in Computer Science (Queen’s University Belfast, 2002). I'm an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, on the steering committee of the Association for Psychosocial Studies, and an Associate Editor of the British Journal of Educational Psychology.

Previously (2011–2013) I was a research fellow at the Evidence Based Practice Unit, between UCL and the Anna Freud Centre, and research lead at the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC). I helped develop the evaluation framework for the Children and Young People's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP IAPT) programme and worked in the CAMHS Payment by Results project data analytic team. Before coming to London, I was a postdoc at the University of Salzburg in Austria (2008–2011), first on the European Science Foundation LogICCC programme, where I investigated how people reason about uncertain conditionals, then on the Aniketos project, where I contributed to work on cognitive and social models of trust in a secure cloud computing domain.

Research Summary

My research investigates psychosocial interventions for children and young people: are they effective and what moderates effectiveness? Recent publications have investigated intervention outcomes in NHS child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) settings; the goals young people have when coming to therapy; and methodological work to estimate outcomes in routine practice when there is no control group. I have also published in the psychology of reasoning, for example, on how people interpret probabilistic "if"s and what it means for a statistical model to be a cognitive model of how people reason.
