I have been involved with engineering education activities since 2009 and have worked with many charities, schools and funding bodies to develop and deliver engaging and informative projects throughout the UK.  In 2012 I began my PhD research at Aston University where I am exploring engineering education activities at Primary school focusing on children’s experiences of these activities.

I am interested in enabling students to make informed decisions about their future careers, in order for this to happen I feel that a holistic approach to engineering education and research is required.
