I am a developmental psychologist with a particular interest in the influence of education on the development of children’s creative abilities. I am Director of Staffordshire Universities Psychology Children’s Lab.
Other areas in which I have research expertise are the effect of television on children’s behaviour and university students’ engagement with feedback.
I rejoined Staffordshire University as a lecturer in developmental psychology in September 2014. Prior to this I have spent time working at Keele University, the Open University and in the NHS as an assistant psychologist. My roots are at Staffordshire University though as this is where I studied my Undergraduate degree and then a PhD in Psychology.
