Research Interests

I lead the Physics Education research group at the University of Edinburgh.  My research interests are in developing and evaluating evidence-based educational strategies that improve student learning in physics and related disciplines.  I am particularly interested in the student experience of learning, teaching, assessment and feedback and in the ways that this can inform educational development.


I teach across a range of courses at both undergraduate and taught postgraduate level. Currently this includes the courses Modern Physics and Scientific Programming. I am also Course Organiser for the Science Education Placement: Physics course and for the MSc in High Performance Computing dissertation.

I am the Senior Tutor for the School and Year Coordinator for the Senior Honours and Integrated Masters years.
