Welcome! On this site, you can learn about my research & publication programme and acquire related pedagogical resources. In the ‘STEPWISE’ project, graduate students, post-docs, colleagues, science teachers and I explore science/STEM educators’ work to educate students so that they may self-direct effective ‘RiNA’ projects to overcome harms – like climate crises  & species losses – in STEM-SE relationships that appear largely due to influences of elite people/groups over most entities. As elaborated here, STEPWISE is designed to counter effects of neoliberalism on science/STEM education like Stratifying Inquiry-based Learning & Sanitized STEM Education and Public Propaganda. As in the video at right/below, we imagine ecojust futures for all. You can invite us to share our work at outreach.
