Gillian is a post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Education working with Professor of Psychology and Education, Charles Hulme.
Recent projects include an EEF-funded randomised controlled trial (RCT) of the Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI) in 200 primary schools across the UK. See a video of an intervention session in action on the recent trial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5dP6i2sKRk&feature=youtu.be.
She is currently working on the development and evaluation via RCT of an early language enrichment programme for children in nursery and the development and standardisation of the LanguageScreen app, which assesses a range of language skills in young children.
Gillian completed her PhD at UCL under the supervision of Professors Charles Hulme and David Shanks. Her research combined an interest in both memory and language, investigating the relationship between procedural and declarative memory processes and language-related attainment in children.
