I am a psychology teacher and teacher trainer, author and researcher. I'm currently working on the University of Strathclyde's PGDE programme, training new psychology teachers, as well as completing a PhD part time at the same institution. My research interests focus on the practical applications of memory research to education, as well as the teacher professionalism implications of cognitive knowledge and research skills. I write school psychology textbooks and support books for teachers, and have spoken at several education conferences. I'm a board member of the British Psychological Society's Standing Committee on Pre-tertiary Education (SCoPTE), and a member of the Scottish Educational Research Association's Emerging Researcher Network. I am passionate about the value of psychology education as a key part of the school curriculum.
