I have a PhD from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.  From 2006 to 2016, I was Research Director at the UCL Centre for the Wider Benefits of Learning and then the Department of Quantitative Social Science.  I was seconded as Interim Director of Evidence for the Early Intervention Foundation in 2016.  Since 2017, I have been Programme Director of MSc Behaviour Change in the Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology. 
Research Summary

My research focuses on mental health and wellbeing, risk and resilience and aspirations and attainment, with a particular interest in diversity and inclusion for children and adolescents.  I am also interested in the development, implementation and evaluation of interventions for children and young people using behaviour change frameworks.  I am PI of a collaborative project with UCL Access and Widening Participation Office to design and evaluate a school-based intervention aimed to support academic outcomes during the transition to Key Stage 3 for disadvantaged students. I am also Co-I of a project funded by the Education Endowment Foundation to inform the implementation of evidence-based school and teaching practices through the translation and application of the Behaviour Change Wheel (BCW) Framework.
