Emily teaches across a suite of modules examining developmental psychology including an optional module entitled ‘Infancy’ which looks at the first two years of life.
Present research interests include the development of reading and related skills, the role of technology in education and the development of writing alongside other literacy skills.
Emily is currently engaged in a project examining the use of Word Aware as an intervention in schools to boost vocabulary alongside Dr Emily Harrison (BLSS) and Dr Tom Hopkins (HELS).
Emily is supervising a PhD student looking at Postnatal Depression and the impact of Social Media. The study uses a mixed-methods approach to examine social media use in parents (both mothers and fathers) in the postnatal period with the aim to understand better how social media is used as well as identifying how these platforms could be used to reach out and provide help for parents in crisis.
