Interests

I'm a third year PhD student, broadly interested in child development and individual differences.

The goal of my PhD has been to better understand the environmental mechansisms behind social inequalities in educational and mental health outcomes. Our approach is to use data-driven anlyses to answer these questions, utilising large-scale open datasets.

I have also been involved in developing app-based cognitive tests, to allow researchers to more easily and efficiently collect large-scale datasets of their own.
