I came to Bournemouth University in 2012 as a postgraduate researcher in the Department of Psychology. My research interests in the field of cognitive psychology primarily revolve around understanding language development and reading.

Our eye movements have been described as a "window to the mind", a key indicator of moment-to-moment cognitive processes. Eye movement recording can be used in a wide range of investigations. I use brand new mobile eye tracking with children in classroom tasks to study how children read, remember and write language in the classroom.
