Amy joined Qa in August 2018 as a Research Executive with a main focus on quantitative research methodologies.
Following the completion of her MPsych in Psychology from the University of York Amy has developed an in depth knowledge of advanced quantitative techniques and statistical models such as regression analysis which she will apply in her role at Qa.
As part of her Master’s degree Amy focused on the assessment and treatment of Developmental Disorders such as Autism, gaining experience with the diagnostic tools and assessment methods used by Educational Psychologists.
For Amy’s dissertation she chose to research empathy towards refugees; looking at how humanising vocabulary can influence empathy. A secondary aim of the research was whether using this vocabulary on charity adverts, could encourage more donations as a result.
Amy is looking forward to applying her academic expertise to add value to Qa’s clients.
