Current research:

My most recent research t investigated how science and language learning of children for whom English is not their first language could be further enhanced and supported in state primary schools in England. This was a two-year long collaborative research project between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield City Council. More about the project can be found here: https://sites.google.com/a/sheffield.ac.uk/eal-science-project/. At present I am applying for external funding to conduct similar type of research in local secondary schools.
