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.

Currently I teach on the following courses: Modern Physics, Scientific Programming, Computer Simulation and Science Education Placement: Physics.

I am Director of Teaching for the School.
