Research Postgraduate in the Department of Psychology


I am a Doctoral Teaching Fellow in the Department of Psychology, interested in how children grasp language and numerical concepts. My current PhD research explores the neural, behavioural, and environmental factors that shape early number word learning. Previously, I completed my Masters in Developmental Psychopathology here at Durham University, where my research examined the relationship between phonological processing skills, reading, and arithmetic strategy use in school-aged children.
