About me

My career has included crystallography and dermatology research, educational research, teaching and lecturing. For the last six years my dual research focus has been on improving educational outcomes and widening access to Higher Education. My recent appointment to the post of Lecturer in Science Education at Stirling University combines the scientific and education strands of my career. I work closely with Heriot-Watt University on our joint concurrent science with professional education degree (primary and secondary), and carry out research in two main areas: improving educational outcomes for looked after children and science education.
