I have a First class honours degree in Psychology (GBC accredited). Previously, I have conducted research on cognition and drink driving at Leeds University. I have also had experience as a Research Assistant at the University of Bradford working on a project which focussed on the effect of e-portfolios on reflection and metacognition. I have been employed as a psychology learning support officer at the University of Bradford since September 2008. I am thoroughly enjoying my post as it involves supporting undergraduate (BSc) and post-graduate (MSc) students in lab based teaching sessions, help sessions and office hours. I also provide technical assistance for both staff and students.
