Research Summary

I am a psychologist with a particular focus on child development. I am broadly interested in motivation and particularly motivation in relation to learning, with a specific interest in its relationship with literacy development. My research interests include the relationship between motivation, engagement and learning, how motivation can be manipulated in educational settings to raise attainment, the interplay between cognitive and affective elements in learning and the neural pathways underpinning situational interest and how this relates to reward circuitry. 

Teaching Summary

I am currently teaching on various modules of the BSc Social Sciences and also Evidence for Policy and Practice.
