Personal profile


I am a senior lecturer in child development in the Department of Educational Studies.  I have a PhD in developmental psychology and I am a registered psychologist.  My main research is on outdoor play and learning and I also conduct research in early vision impairment/blindness and early bilingualism.  I am a chief investigator in a multidisciplinary team known as the Sydney Playground Project.  We have investigated a range of physical and social outcomes for young children following our outdoor play intervention. 

I am not taking new PhD or MRes students at the moment, but I will consider projects that involve investigations of outdoor play.
