    My research interests are in the field of mathematics education in Higher Education. Along with colleagues, I was responsible for the HE curriculum strand of the More Maths Grads project working with universities across England exploring student and staff attitudes to undergraduate mathematics More recently I have been focussing on assessment and feedback practices in mathematics and related subjects.
