I am a developmental psychologist with a particular interest in the development of children’s creative abilities. I am Director of Staffordshire University’s 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 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in May 2019. Prior to this I 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.
