Research Summary
I am a post doctoral researcher currently working on the EEF-funded ScratchMaths project, which is aiming to build children's mathematical knowledge through learning to program.

My research interest span the areas of human-centred design, child-computer interaction, educational technology and children's programming. I am particularly interested in exploring how technology designers can involve children with diverse educational needs in the design of new technologies, and in what ways participation in design can beneficially impact different stakeholders. I am also concerned with how we can best design and develop new curricula to support the participation of all children within the new primary computing curriculum.
