I’m originally from the UK but have been living and working in The Netherlands since 2008. After obtaining a PhD in Astrophysics and working for several years as a postdoc, I moved into STEM Education and Outreach. I spent several years working in the European Space Agency’s Education Team on a variety of projects at primary and secondary level including developing classroom resources, teacher training events and educational competitions. In 2016 I moved to the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, AUAS) to teach science and science didactics to trainee primary school teachers. In June 2020, I partially moved to the Netherlands Research School for Astronomy (NOVA) to take up the position of Education Manager. Our education projects operate on a national level and include a group of inflatable mobile planetariums which visit around 300 of schools each year. I also continue to work at the AUAS on a number of science didactics research projects.


Appointed as NAEC until: Aug. 1, 2024
