Personal profile

Biography

I graduated from King’s College London with a BSc in Computer Science, and went on to complete a PhD in Psychology at Warwick University. I completed many years as a postdoctoral research fellow at Warwick University working in short-term memory and reading research with Prof. Gordon Brown. Since 2009 I have worked in the area of reading development as a research fellow at Coventry University. I am interested in computational modelling of reading development as well as behavioural studies of reading development.

Research Interests

Contextual Diversity; Scale Invariance of Memory; Language and Reading Development; Statistical Modelling and Reading Instruction

Vision Statement

My recent research was inspired by the desire to understand the role of what it is that children have to learn when learning to read and how this could shape the way reading is taught. The end goal is to improve reading instruction for all children.
