Research summary

My research aims to  explore difference in the way seven year old children engage in play in two  different contexts, playing with toy figures and whilst playing a bespoke video  game. This will be done in the context of the Cardiff Child Development Study;  a prospective longitudinal study of first time mothers and their children. I am  interested in identifying different forms of engagement with the two different  contexts of play, how the different forms of engagement are related to  differences in the play, and whether there are similarities in this engagement  across the two contexts of play.

Teaching summary

As a Graduate Teaching Assistant I provide group  seminars for the Undergraduate first year level 4 and 5 modules. I additionally  mark and provide feedback on the essays for these modules.
