This report from the BPS Careers in Psychology online event was written with journalist Ella Rhodes and managing editor Dr Jon Sutton. I attended the final part of the day, watching Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton and Professor Carol Dando give fascinating talks about their careers. The report is called 'Careers are squiggly', and my section starts 'That fire in your belly'. You can read it here.

I wrote a chapter in the book with my PhD supervisor Iroise Dumontheil. Our chapter is called 'Brain and Cognitive Development During Adolescence: Implications for Science and Mathematics Education'.
It's great to see this published, because our chapter includes lots of the literature that I reviewed for my thesis. I'm looking forward to reading the other contributions when my copy arrives!
The book is published by Routledge and is available here.
