Research interests

I have two research areas, one in marine photosynthetic organisms and the other in science education. My marine research has focused on characterising the symbiosome membrane of cnidarian-algal endosymbioses.
I am interested in how students learn science, including how to best use ICT in science curricula. Part of my research has been identifying where science students get stuck as we introduce them to our science discipline practices. The low level of confidence that science students appear to have when applying their numeracy skills to their science studies is alarming and I am uses the Thresholds Concepts Framework, Mindfulness in Learning and Thinking Dispositions to better understand how students develop their quantitative skills. am a senior lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences, University of Sydney.

Current projects

One of my current projects is developing an app, a Campus Flora with Matthew Pye, our eResources Unit and my Botany students.
