I am a reading development researcher with a particular interest in the role of pre-school skills and reading readiness in children’s response to early literacy instruction. I have specific expertise in big data analysis (structural equation modelling and multi-level modelling) and dynamic testing techniques (testing children’s potential to learn, rather than their current level). My long-term aim is to study and share the techniques best suited to teaching, assessing, and improving the language and literacy skills of young children.
