Personal profile

Research interests

In the last several years my research has focussed on evidence-based learning and teaching in higher education, with a particular emphasis on the development of statistical literacy, the use of virtual patients for the training of fundamental clinical skills, and peer learning. I am particularly interested in understanding the barriers that psychology students face when learning research methods and statistics, and strategies that can help them become better researchers and scientific thinkers.
