Overview

My PhD research investigates barriers to children and adolescents’ interest, motivation and engagement in STEM domains as well as factors that can improve gender representation in STEM. I explore motivation and engagement in informal science learning sites such as science centres, museums, zoos and aquariums.

Research

Research interests

My PhD research investigates children's and adolescents' interest, gender stereotypes, motivation and engagement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), specifically at informal STEM learning sites.

Research projects

Science Learning+ STEM teens project

A 5-year collaborative project investigating the role of youth educators in informal STEM learning sites across the US and the UK. Funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in the UK and the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the US.

Social Class Identity Project

This collaborative research explores how young people develop a sense of their social class identity and how what parents communicate material and cultural dimensions of their social class to young people.
