Staff Profile

Jess Brown

Psychology Technician

I am a PhD student and my research interests span a range of topics within developmental and language psychology. My project is investigating the link between socio-economic status, text exposure and processing of complex language.  The focus of this research is to investigate the role of socio-economic status in how efficiently we process complex language, both in comprehension and production of complex sentences, and whether this relationship can be mediated by text and language exposure.

My role as a psychology technician is to provide support for staff and student research projects, as well as provide training for specialist equipment, resources and software. I have also taught undergraduate students on psychobiology, cognitive psychology and statistics modules.
