Strategic Initiatives Lead,
STEM Learning

I am the Strategic Initiatives Lead at STEM Learning, working across the organisation to support cohesive working, collaborations, new initiatives and dissemination of good practice and success stories. I am an engineer by education and completed a PhD which can be succinctly described as why women do study engineering. I have worked in various organisations with a focus on STEM education, outreach and promotion. I am a passionate supporter of promoting STEM knowledge and skills amongst people of all ages and backgrounds, not only because of how fascinating the subjects are but also because knowledge, understanding and manipulation of these subjects and skills will empower the next generation of scientist and engineers to solve the big issues this world is currently facing.
