About me

image002I am a Reader in the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough University. I am currently funded by a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship.

My research concerns the systems and processes that underlie numerical and mathematical abilities in adults and children. More specifically I am interested in:

  • Cognitive and environmental influences on the development of early numeracy and later mathematics skills.
  • The role of domain-general skills including executive functions, language and spatial skills in mathematics performance and learning.
  • Mathematical learning difficulties and dyscalculia.
  • Mathematical difficulties in preterm-born children.
