Nora is a Senior Research Associate for mixed methods research by The EdTech Hub, on which she is seeking out effective interventions involving educational technology in low to middle income countries.

Nora has research experience in relating and explaining income inequalities to child mental health, especially child antisocial behaviour. She also has particular expertise with teacher effectiveness and cross-cultural comparisons. Her methodological strengths lie in quantitative analysis of observational and intensive data, real-world research with quasi-designs, and the bringing together of multiple disciplines to meet complex research needs. Nora takes special interest in eye-tracking research and is an advocate for the value of capturing implicit and subjective experiences to be understood through explicit and objective frameworks.
