Biography

Laura is a Research Fellow at the new Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities (CEPEO), focused on identifying and reducing structural barriers to opportunities across the life course. Laura's research expertise lies in developmental psychology, education, and innovation in different educational, cultural, and economic contexts. 


Laura is currently contributing to a systematic review of early childhood development assessment tools in low and middle-income countries as part of the UKRI-GCRF Action Against Stunting Research Hub. She is also a Research Mentor for the EDUCATE project at the UCL Knowledge Lab, which brings together researchers and EdTech entrepreneurs to drive and sustain evidence-based educational innovations. 


Alongside her funded projects, Laura is carrying out research examining how educational maths apps can support young children's mathematical learning and development. This work extends from her PhD research on evaluating the reach and utility of a maths app intervention in the UK, Brazil and Malawi with Professor Nicola Pitchford (Professor of Developmental Psychology) and Anthea Gulliford (Educational Psychologist) at the University of Nottingham. Laura is also currently working on a pilot evaluation trial examining the impact of different motivational goal types on student engagement with an educational technology learning platform.
