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 understanding what makes a great teacher and how to support teachers' effectiveness and wellbeing. My aim is to contribute to improving teacher retention rates and increasing the social status of the teaching profession.
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).
