About me

I​ taught in London primary schools as a science specialist. I went on to be an advisory teacher for Science and Assessment at Hammersmith and Fulham. My career in Science Education began at Brunel University, West London. I worked on the Primary Committe for the ASE as well as on the London Regional Commitee.

I  advised Friends of the Earth on their Educational Materials and Strategy

I​ was an evaluator on the EU Framework 7 project ' Engineer' and worked on a follow up Engineering Professor's Council project 'Children as engineers'. I received a HEFCE bid to evaluate a combined engineering and science teaching initiative and a university award on the role of parents in aspirations towards engineering. I completed a Vice Chancellor Early Career Researcher grant exploring how children gain science and engineering capital and how that influences their career aspirations.

I am an associate fellow of the Science Communication Unit at UWE.

I  have ​ been awarded the TEAN award for Effective Teacher Education for 2018 with my  colleagues Fay Lewis and Laura Fogg-Rogers​ and received a national Stem inspiration award.

At present I am researching the effective methods of communicating science findings to children through literature as well as looking at students' misconceptions in science when they arrive at university.
