Tammy joined EPI in 2022, while completing a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship based in LSE’s Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE). She remains a Visiting Senior Fellow at CASE. Her PhD in Quantitative Social Science for Social Policy was awarded in 2016 by the UCL Institute of Education, and she also holds degrees in Policy Analysis and Evaluation, Psychology, and Philosophy.
Pre-PhD, Tammy was a Government Social Researcher, in the (then) Department for Children, Schools and Families; before that, she worked with children and young people. Tammy’s interests span the social, structural, educational and psychological processes shaping young lives. Her research has included investigations of inequalities and experiences in the pre-school years, ‘ability’ grouping, bias and stereotyping in assessment, the part played by ‘faith’ schools in stratification, the workings of the system intended to serve children with special educational needs and / or disabilities, and peer effects.
