Meet the Team


Dr Camilla Gilmore

I am a Reader in the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough University. I carry out research into the development of maths skills and understanding. I also have three young children and am fascinated in watching how they learn new skills.


Dr Sophie Batchelor

I am a research fellow in the Mathematics Education Centre and I’m interested in the skills that help children in the early stages of number learning.


Jayne Pickering

Hi, I’m Jayne. I have wide research interests including how things like attention and memory affect numerical reasoning. Outside of work my hobbies include films, books, puzzles, board games, country walks and writing. I’ve written a novel, and I’m currently designing a board game.



I am currently studying an undergraduate degree in Social Psychology.  I am looking forward to meeting you all! Hopefully this will lead to some interesting findings on how children’s mathematical abilities develop.
