Dr Storey’s Research is dedicated to improving educational outcomes for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, including Looked-After Children and those from low socio-economic backgrounds. Dr. Storey is invested in improving inclusivity for children with developmental disorders such as Autism.

This research has included exploring the efficacy of Educational Technology as a supplementary instruction tool that could contribute to closing the attainment gap within classrooms. Her DEL funded research from 2013-2016 focused particularly on improving literacy outcomes.
