I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Psychology in Education in the Department of Education at the University of York, UK. I am also a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol) in the UK and the Director of the Health, Effectiveness, And Retention of Teachers (HEART) Research Group
My research interests lie in supporting teachers' mental health and wellbeing, and thereby improving teacher effectiveness and teacher retention.
I have engaged with numerous national and international organisations, including UNESCO’s International Teacher Task Force; UK Government’s Open Innovation Team (Department for Education); GIZ (German semi-government development agency) in Malawi; and ImpactEd (UK education non-profit).
