I am one of the full time education staff in the Department, developing and enriching curriculum activities. Formally I am a physical chemist with expertise in optical spectroscopy (visible wavelengths) - an interest which has stemmed from a lifelong fascination with colour!
From my PhD in “Biophysical chemistry”, I worked as an EPSRC science communication specialist while undertaking postdoctoral research in biophotonics (using lasers in life science). Following this I made the step from a researcher into a full- before educationalist in Chemistry at Imperial College during which time I was recognised through awards for Excellence in Teaching and Excellence in Pastoral Care.
I have now moved to Swansea as we take an exciting step to develop a new Department of Chemistry, integrating the best of modern and traditional educational methods to deliver a curriculum for the 21st century.
