Personal statement

I am a lecturer in chemistry education, with teaching and supervision responsibilities on the PGDE chemistry. I also contribute to the teaching on BA routes and MA programme. I moved to Starthclyde University from Brunel University London. Prior to that I had been an Inititial Teacher Education tutor at Keele University (Staffordshire).

I taught science in schools in various parts of England before moving to Higher Education and retain a keen interest in all aspects of school science.
