My work focuses on how people engage with and learn about science, with an emphasis on equity, in particular the construction of publics and ‘non’ publics for science, and the role of privilege in such processes.
I have taught Science Communication, Science Education and Social Studies of Science at different places, including UWE, UCL, KCL and the Royal College of Art and I’ve worked on research projects at Stanford University, KCL, UWE, Goldsmiths and now here at UCL. Over the past 9 years I have carried out research on public engagement with science in a variety of settings including science centres, museums, scientific societies and schools.
Some lists: before coming to UCL I was a Lecturer of Science Engagement and Communication at King’s College London (KCL), before that I worked in STS here at UCL, before that I did my PhD at King's College London and before that I worked in the Science Communication Unit at the University of the West of England (UWE).
