Personal profile

Overview

My research interests lie predominantly within the fields of developmental and educational psychology and focus on inequalities experienced by those living with disability. I have examined the education, unconscious bias, bullying and social determinants of health of children with developmental disabilities. I have also examined the lived experience of adults living with a hidden disability.  I have collaborated on projects examining executive functions in both typical and atypical populations. 

Current research activities

I am part of on-going national and international multi-disciplinary projects aimed at enhancing social inclusion and emotional literacy of children with disabilities. I have worked on intervention projects aimed at reducing challenging behaviour in children and I am developing an intervention to support teachers to work with children with disabilities.I am also collaborating on a number of projects examining teacher beliefs towards inclusion with colleagues both internal and external to UWS. Finally, I am working collaboratively on projects examining the impact of poverty on educational outcomes and the role teachers play in supporting learners.

Desired research direction

I aim to build on my current research findings relating to inclusive education. To do this I aim to;

1) Develop a cost effective intervention targeting beliefs to enhance teachers’ confidence and positive attitudes towards inclusion.

2) Further examine teachers’ unconscious biases

3) Examine inclusion in higher education

4) More social inclusion research
