Studying IB at school has lead to a perpetual interest in interdisciplinary studies and research. I studied Chemistry at Oxford, but worked researching Atmospheric Chemistry on Saturn for my Masters; and then studied Art and Science at Central Saint Martins. I'm particularly interested in how researchers from different academic backgrounds can work together, which I'm currently researching for my PhD at UCL. Outside my academic work, I've been tutoring for over 2 years. This work tutoring with younger students in science and maths encouraged me to volunteer at the Science Museum, which has lead to me now working part-time at the Museum as an Explainer on the interactive galleries.
I'm particularly focused on supporting students who aren't really interested and engaged with Science and Maths by helping them see the relevance of these subjects to the rest of their studies to improve their commitment. With arts and humanities students, I tend to use physical models and image or narrative based techniques, to engage them through the subject matter that interests them. Once more interested in the subject matter, I focus on maintaining the enthusiasm by ensuring they understand the material. However, I know there's no one-size fits all solution to problems of students not being engaged with their studies, and I work closely with each of them to find what works for them.
What I do when I am not tutoring
When I'm not tutoring I work part-time at the Science Museum and part-time on my PhD. I enjoy working on other projects too - which at the moment include art-science project Creative Reactions (for Pint of Science) and art curation. I'll be around in London for at least 3 years for my PhD studies at UCL, and my other work at the Science Museum is regular and during daytime hours (9am-3pm).
