Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in how new technologies might influence the social and cognitive development of children, especially children with developmental disorders like autism.

 

Biography

I graduated with undergraduate and masters degrees in Psychology from the University of Birmingham, followed by a PhD in Developmental Psychology at the University of Nottingham. I was an ESRC Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham, before becoming a Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, and then a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde. I joined Heriot-Watt University in 2012 as a Reader.
