I completed my BSc in Psychology at the University of Leeds in 2017. I went onto receive ESRC (1+3) funding, completing my MA in Social Research Methods at the University of Sheffield in 2018. Following this, I began my PhD at the University of Sheffield, exploring cognitive and home learning environment mechanisms by which socioeconomic status impacts early maths ability. I am due to submit my PhD in early 2022. 
 
I joined The Centre for Mathematical Cognition in November 2021 to work with Dr Francesco Sella and Professor Tim Jay on their Nuffield funded project to design and evaluate a novel board game to improve early numerical skills. 

I am a developmental psychologist interested in understanding how socioeconomic attainment gaps in early maths ability arise. I am passionate about developing ways in which we can support early maths development to narrow inequalities before they embed and widen.
