Physics Teacher

After completing my PGCE in Secondary Physics, I worked at an excellent school in England for three years teaching Maths to KS3 and KS4, Science to KS3 and Physics to KS3, KS4 and KS5. I have been teaching Science and Physics at BSKL since 2019.

Prior to working in education I worked first as a research astrophysicist. During my PhD I was involved in the first detection of a gravitational microlensing event and wrote a seminal paper in the field. I continued astrophysics research at Imperial College London publishing further papers in gravitational lensing and X-Ray astronomy. I then embarked on a career in finance which involved investment banking roles in London and Frankfurt as well as Hedge Fund and Regulatory roles in Dublin. I try to integrate this experience into my teaching and extra-curricular work at school. I am a keen musician, playing oboe and cor anglais. I also has a passion for the ocean and love to explore the underwater environment in all conditions via scuba diving.

I believe that a student's learning experience should be presented in an enjoyable and caring environment and that the happier my students are the more real learning is going on. As teachers we can contribute to student happiness by nurturing all aspects of students' personalities. At BSKL there is ample time and opportunity to do this.
