I'm an analyst dealing mainly with large-scale, quantitative data. Current projects include investigations of month of birth effects and their causes, of stereotyping and bias in assessment of primary school children, of the effects of ability grouping in education, and of inequalities around birth and early babyhood.
I worked with children and young people in the UK, Japan, and Norway, before discovering research as an alternative means to change and development. I joined central government as a social scientist, with stints in the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Education. I then moved to the Department of Quantitative Social Science at the UCL Institute of Education, where I'm currently completing my PhD.
