Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on children’s cognitive development, and particularly on the processes that support goal-directed behaviour and the maintenance of information in immediate memory. These abilities in turn affect children’s control of behaviour, and aspects of their language learning and educational attainment. Although my work is based on a detailed understanding of typical development, much of it is applied to developmental conditions including autism, Down syndrome, and Williams syndrome. It therefore has both clinical and educational relevance, and has led to the development of information resources for educational professionals.
