I am a research assistant for the Strand A project "What is Play?" at the Centre for Research on Play in Education, Development and Learning (PEDaL). My current research interests lie in studying the development of cognitive, social, and emotional skills in early childhood. I am also part of the 2015/2016 cohort of the Junior Researcher Programme, where my work explores the utility of mobile technologies as a tool for assessing Health-Related Quality of Life in real-time.
