Personal profile

Research Statement

My research revolves around three inter-related themes: Social emotional development, academic attainment and programme evaluation. Within this I have a particular interest in the development of prosocial behaviour in pre-school and primary school children as well as literacy and numeracy progression more generally. I have designed, conducted and published over 25 large-scale studies, which have included: simple and cluster randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews, quasi-experimental evaluations and cross sectional surveys.
