I am the lead physicist for a large, research-informed curriculum development project called Best Evidence Science Teaching (BEST); and a researcher in science education.

Previously, I taught Science and Physics for 28 years in a wide variety of secondary schools in Barnsley, Guyana, Harrogate, Tadcaster and York. I have had leadership roles for special educational needs, physics and KS3 science, and for 15 years led a large school science department, developing a very strong focus on research informed practice.
