I'm currently researching how carefully-targeted low-cost interventions can reduce the barriers to learning of some groups of school students and help prepare them for a happy and productive life.

This follows my MSc in Behavioural Science at the LSE, where my disseration was based on a randomised controlled trial in a school to test whether a self-affirmation intervention reduced stereotype threat. The results were very encouraging.

Previously I specialised in helping large organisations define and deliver complex change programmes.

I've supported the Department for Education in delivering a number of policies across England, including a £217m initiative aimed at improving the well-being and attainment of disadvantaged pupils.

I've also supported a range of FTSE-100 organisations in large-scale change programmes such as post-acquisition integration and new product rollout.
