I 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.
