Biography

My research interests are centred on factors that influence performance within STEM learning environments. My current research project aims to enhance the use of evidence-based practice within University level STEM learning environments.

Research Interests

My research activities examine various elements of performance and cognitive psychology within educational environments. This includes quasi-experimental research examining the enhancement of educational outcomes through targeted interventions. Currently I am part of a team examining links between spatial and mathematical reasoning with a view to increasing performance within STEM fields.
