Profile

Biography

I am a Lecturer/Assistant Professor in Psychology in Education and a chartered psychologist (CPsychol). I received my PhD in Psychology from the University of Sydney, Australia and worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the Teacher Selection Project, funded by the European Research Council Consolidator Grant. 

My research interests lie in the assessment and development, of student and teacher non-cognitive characteristics (particularly social emotional competencies). I investigate the role of student and teacher non-cognitive characteristics on student (e.g., academic achievement) and teacher outcomes (e.g., instructional quality and burnout). I use interdisciplinary frameworks, including personality and individual differences, educational psychology, organisational psychology and advanced quantitative methods (e.g., multilevel and structural equation models).
