Research, Academic and Enterprise

Creating educational environments that nurture gifted and talented children and young people to develop their individual passions and potential as adaptive, responsive and engaged citizens is at the heart of my research. Aligning with the University’s research theme of 21st century citizenship, my research is people-focused and aims at enriching our future lives by ensuring future generations of creators, innovators, thinkers and problem-solvers. Understanding learner differences and the ways teachers can respond with differentiated curriculum is imporatant to me, as reflected in my teaching and research as an Associate Professor in the Institute of Education.
