I am interested in the development of Automaticity and Memory structures during the pre-school period and the impact of factors such as sex and socio-economic status. I am also involved in researching the role of play in cognitive development and the emergence of gender identity through play.

I am currently editing a book on Play in the Early Years for Sage.
