I completed my Psychology BSc at the University of Sheffield in 2010, and Psychology MSc at University of Leicester in 2011, before returning to the University of Sheffield to do my PhD (thesis title:Using virtual environments to investigate Wayfinding in children and adults). I have recently completed a 3-year post doctoral position at the University of Liverpool, in which I explored how shared book reading fosters children's language development.
I am currently working as a Research Fellow on an ESRC project with Dr Cat Davies in which we are investigating how children experience, understand, and use adjectives across the socioeconomic spectrum. Using eyetracking experiments, corpus analyses, and a randomised controlled trial, the project aims to reveal how children’s socioeconomic background might affect their descriptive language abilities.
