Research interests

My research interests are focused on diversity in STEM.  With the NUSTEM team I research the attitudinal and behavioural changes required to increase the diversity and number of young people choosing STEM careers.  I am interested in the factors which influence very young children's career choices, and how teachers and famillies can support these early choices.

I also work with organisations to help them develop impactful ways to support diversity in STEM, especially through the use of Theory of Change processes.
