I focus on geoscience education research. I am passionate about enhancing the quality of geoscience education using interdisciplinary research methods, which integrate both social science and educational theory with foundational knowledge and practice within the geoscience discipline. My PhD research will broadly focus on informing educational practice and research within geoparks and the wider geoscience community in Aotearoa New Zealand.
