Welcome to my website!

Here, you can learn about my research & publication programme and gain open-access to related teaching & learning resources. In the ‘STEPWISE’ project, graduate students, post-docs, colleagues, science teachers and I use action research to learn more about science/STEM educators’ efforts to promote educated ‘RiNA’ projects to overcome harms in STSE relationships – which appear (e.g., here & here) largely due to self-serving influences of elite people/groups over most entities. As elaborated here, STEPWISE aims to overcome such effects of neoliberalism on science/STEM education as Stratifying Inquiry-based Learning & Sanitized STEM Education and Public Propaganda. As in the video at right/below, we imagine an ecojust future for all. This work is shared through our outreach and publications.
