My name is Gabriela Roman and I am researcher based at the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge. My main research interest is the development of cognitive and emotional self-regulation and the role of self-regulation for behaviour difficulties (in early childhood) and criminal behaviour (in adolescence and early adulthood). I am particularly interested in the contributions of other actors to the development of a person’s self-regulation. Over the years, I have also been involved in various international projects as a consultant. I am currently working on a book about young people’s pathways into crime, from age 13 to age 24. Previously I was fortunate to learn a little bit about various branches of psychology and criminology via a PhD in developmental psychology (Cambridge University), an MPhil in criminological research (Cambridge University), and a BA in cognitive and social psychology (Jacobs University Bremen).
Courses: I have been delivering training courses since 2013. My flagship courses are in-person and take place in Cambridge. They are hosted by Selwyn College, which looks like a fairy tale. We complete our experience with 3 coffee & cake breaks, as well as lunch in the Great Hall (which also includes cake, of course):
Webinars: I also developed the Mplus Webinarium, a platform through which I sometimes deliver highly interactive webinar series. This format was created with an aim to bring all the interactive and immersive features you would expect from an in-person course directly to the comfort of your living room:
Mathematics: I also co-developed a course in mathematics based on the “STEP I” exam that used to form the basis for admissions to a variety of Maths BSc courses (originating at Cambridge University). This course is aimed at broadening highschool leavers’ access to deep mathematics, so that every pupil who wishes to delve deeper into foundational mathematics is able to so regardless of their circumstance:
About Mplus Wizard
Mplus Wizard is my latest project. It aims to further increase flexibility by allowing you to learn at your own pace (e.g. by allowing you to pause/rewind videos) and your own schedule, while retaining the support you would get when studying in my presence (e.g. via the option to post questions online on the web dashboard directly to me). I record and edit the videos undergoing a minutious process to maximise their quality and delivery in the hope that they provide an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for you.
If you have any questions then please feel free to contact me using the contact details at the bottom of the page.
All the best,
