I am an influential, award winning, and research active applied biochemist with a proven expertise in practitioner use of alternative research-based pedagogies in a modern higher education setting. I have a strong track record of successful research centred-PI accomplishments, both in industry and academia. My research interests are diverse, but broadly fall into two strands: pedagogical and scientific. These strands are aligned under the overarching theme of research informed STEM education. My lab based research informs and maintains the currency of my undergraduate and postgraduate teaching; whilst pedagogic research ensures the most appropriate approaches to teaching and learning are adopted to support all learners.
