Corinna has a PhD in Computer Science from King's College London, in which she developed a logic for explanatory reasoning. Her background is in philosophy, specialising in philosophy of science, with a BSc and MSc from the London School of Economics.
Just prior to joining CRESS in the summer 2008, Corinna worked as an education researcher. Her two major projects were on mathematics education and on the new fashion for "happiness" education, her main concern being that a psychologisation of education will impoverish moral education.
In the SIMIAN project she is working on the cognitive bases of normative behaviour.
