I completed my BSc n Psychology at UCNW Bangor then a PhD in animal learning at University College Cardiff, spending part of the time in the Institute of Physiology in Prague. I completed 2 years post doctoral work in Cardiff and 3 years at the University of Cambridge in Experimental Psychology. I am a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
I began working for the Open University in 1990 as a part-time tutor on psychology and biology modules, and became a Staff Tutor first in London then in the East of England. I moved to a full time central academic role in Psychology in 2009, chairing the remake of DD303, Cognitive psychology and later chaired production of DE300 Investigating Psychology 3. I served as Qualification Lead in Psychology and in 2017 became Deputy Associate Dean Teaching and Learning in FASS. I took up my present position as Associate Dean Teaching and Students in FASS in 2019.
My research interests lie in learning and memory. My early work investigated Pavlovian conditioning mechanisms, contextual learning and neural correlates of attention. More recently my work has investigated factors influencing student learning, in particular online learning. I collaborated with Professor Kieron Sheehy (WELS) on exploring how the use of sign-supported language in the classroom facilitates learning in inclusive education. I am also interested in eyewitness identification and memory for faces
