Personal profile

Research Interests

I am currently a Research Assistant in the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation working on the SMART Spaces RCT study. I have worked on numerous research projects including a number of randomised control trials in education. I am particularly interested in research with children and young people in the area of academic attainment, health and wellbeing.

I completed my PhD in 2019, ‘A Cluster Randomised Controlled Trial Feasibility Study of the ‘Good Behaviour Game in Disadvantaged Schools in Northern Ireland’ and  I am also a Partner Trainer for PAX Good Behaviour Game ©
