My academic history largely stems from an early interest in education that translated into a life-long passion for learning and teaching. My PhD explored how we best integrate information in a collaborative search context. Using cognitive modelling, I analysed how teams pool information to reach an optimal joint decision. More recently, I am interested in environmental sensitivity and the highly sensitive child.
