About me

After completing my PhD in plant microbiology. I decided to change career paths and trained as a primary school teacher.  I taught for 15 years across all year groups in primary schools in the north of England, Somerset and Bristol areas, specialising in maths and science.  In 2012, I joined UWE as a Senior Lecturer in STEM education in the Department of Education and Childhood.  Currently I combine this role along with leading the MA Education programme. 

Area of expertise

Having a background in primary education with a specialism in STEM I now teach on the Initial Teacher Education Programme with a focus on primary maths.  Alongside this, I supervise Masters, Ed.D. and Ph.D. students doing their own educational research.  My own research draws on mixed methods to explore the use of engineering in the primary classroom to teach science and the impact that this has on students teachers and children. Currently I am working on the Children as Engineers project in cooperation with primary schools in the Bristol area.
