Technical Team Leader - Psychology, Social Sciences & Education
I contribute to teaching on Statistics, Research Methods and Cognitive Psychology modules and provide training on the use of specialist Psychology equipment and software, including eye-tracking, virtual reality and E-Prime. I graduated with a BSc (Hons) Psychology degree from the University of York and am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and a member of the Association of Technical Staff in Psychology (ATSiP). In 2012, I co-won the Psychology Technician of the Year Award for 'outstanding contributions to Psychology education and the student learning experience', presented by the HEA.
