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.
