Research Interests:

My research focus is the development of of executive functions in early adolescence. I am currently working with the cognitive data from the SCAMP project https://www.scampstudy.org/ . The SCAMP study is a longitudinal cohort study invstigating the impacts of mobile phone use on adolescents' development. My work is investigating how executive function and other aspects of cognition develop between the ages 11 and 13, and what factors affect the pattern of development.

My PhD is funded by an ESRC CASE studentship, with additional AQM funding.
