Areas of expertise My main interests are working memory and short-term memory, particularly the processes and strategies which support working memory performance. I am a strong believer in studying developmental populations and individual differences as an aid to understanding cognition. Additionally, I am interested in rhythm and language, and their links to short-term memory capacity in both adults and children.

I am now working with Professor Chris Jarrold and Dr John Towse on a three year ESRC funded project looking at the development of working memory.
