  • Lecturer in Science Education
  • IOE - Curriculum, Pedagogy & Assessment
  • UCL Institute of Education

Before joining UCL IOE I taught science (chemistry) for 12 years in comprehensive schools in west London, latterly as an Advanced Skills Teacher which involved mentoring and training science teachers.

My main interests are in Chemistry education; especially connected to students understanding of models in chemistry and mentoring PGCE Science students.

Current research projects include:
  • Developing pre-service teachers' explanations of subsequent ionisation energy values. Considering the efficacy of interventions aimed to allow pre-service teachers to adapt their atomic models and hence improve their application of electrostatic properties to the atom.
  • Developing resources for teaching ionisation energy more effectively in schools
