Research Topic: Ethnic Segregation and Academic Attainment in Colombia

My research concerns the relationship between ethnicity and pupils' attainment. In particular, the research employs multilevel modelling to understand the link between ethnic segregation and ethnic attainment gaps at the end of compulsory education in Colombia.

Research Topic: Examining the impact of residential mobility in childhood and adolescence on health and educational outcomes

My research employs longitudinal cohort modelling to examine the way in which key life events such as residential mobility in childhood and adolescence impact upon health and educational outcomes in these periods. My research is situated in an advanced quantitative framework and principally conducted on the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children, a Bristol based cohort of children born in the early 1990’s, and draws on elements from the epidemiological, educational, geographical, and broad social science disciplines.

Research Topic: Advanced statistical methods for analysing eye movements

The characteristics of our eye movements can tell us many things about how we approach visual tasks and about the psychological processes involved. As such, studies using eye tracking methodology have yielded invaluable insights in educational, developmental and psychological research. While eye movement data is rich, it is also complex. The interpretation of eye movements changes over time and differs substantially between individuals. My research focusses on investigating a subset of advanced statistical models, specifically Hidden Markov Models and random effects models, to address the analytical problems presented by these rich data-sets.
