My first degree was in psychology. I then completed a PGCE, and taught mathematics in a London comprehensive school. I then completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge on the topic of teacher stress. My teaching focuses on psychological aspects of teaching and learning in schools. I am a Professor in Educational Psychology and am currently the Director for Research Programmes.
I am particularly interested in researching aspects of effective teaching, the experience of being a teacher, and helping troubled pupils.
Recent PhD studies I have supervised include research on the following topics:
I am a member of the British Educational Research Association, the British Psychological Society, and the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction.
I have conducted four systematic reviews of the literature on aspects of mathematics teaching and learning in schools.
I am currently conducting collaborative research with colleagues in Brazil, Japan, Norway and Saudi Arabia.
