Research Interests

She is actively involved in teacher education at both pre-service and in-service levels as well as science education to undergraduate science students. After 20 years working and researching in the area of heterogeneous catalysis, her research interests over the last 10 years are now focussed on science education, in particular on visualisation in chemistry teaching, inquiry based approaches in teaching science (chemistry) at all educational levels coupled with appropriate assessment of learning, and appropriate use of technology in teaching. She was the coordinator of the FP7 SAILS project and a member of the coordinating team on the FP7 ESTABLISH project.
