Research Summary

I am a PhD Researcher and Teaching Assistant on the BA Education at the Institute of Education (IOE). In the context of teacher shortages disproportionately affecting the sciences, my mixed-methods research considers which factors, experiences and attitudes prompt some young people to first want to become a teacher (especially in the sciences), and which factors enable these aspirations to sometimes be realised, and at other times dropped, as young people progress through education.

Before starting my PhD I was a secondary school teacher, and worked on the ASPIRES project here at the IOE. The ASPIRES dataset forms part of my study, and is a longitudinal research project led by Professor Louise Archer tracking young people’s science and career aspirations from primary school and through secondary, further and higher education.

My PhD is funded by the UK's Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), with co-funding from the Royal Society of Chemistry. My supervisors are Professor Louise Acrher, Professor Martin Mills, and Annette Farrell at the Royal Society of Chemistry.
