I’m a Senior Lecturer (Education Focused), in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience and have been here since 1992. I’m interested in research methods teaching, critical reasoning, science communication and Growth Mindset. I have just completed two significant projects (1) an evaluation of Readiness for Learning in primary schools, and (2) a review of NHSGGC Trauma Informed Practice Training Needs Assessment Final Report.
