I am a Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood. I joined Liverpool Hope University in 2012 as a PDTF in Education/ Early Childhood. I have been a kindergarten teacher in the past and my PhD thesis examined young children's decision making in probabilistic and risk-taking games. I teach on undergraduate and postgraduate courses and currently my research interests incorporate both methodological and theoretical issues on teaching and learning as well as aspects of cognitive development in early childhood; reasoning, perception, risk-taking. I am a member of the OMEP UK Executive Committee, I co-convene the EECERA Ã¢â¬ËHolistic Well-beingÃ¢â¬â¢ SIG and am a SFHEA.
