Georgia is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia. She leads the Psychology Theme for the undergraduate medical course (MBBS) and is student Senior Adviser. She teaches Developmental and Health Psychology, and Consultation Skills for medical practice.
Her research has evolved from the study of children’s conceptual development in the domain of astronomy to the study of children’s understanding of biology, the human body, and the concepts of life, health, illness and death. Her current research explores the relationship between school children’s knowledge of the functioning of the human body and their ideas about what constitutes healthy food and physical activity. She is also interested in how culture, experiences and parental discourse influence children’s reasoning in the domain of biology.
