Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on tackling issues related to inequality and promoting inclusion and diversity in education. Using psychological theories, I explore innovative strategies to engage young people in various STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields, aiming to challenge stereotypes and foster a sense of belonging and identity that sustains motivation and engagement in STEM.

A central aspect of my research is bridging research with practice. I have established collaborative partnerships with community organisations, schools, and informal learning sites such as science centers, museums, zoos, and aquariums. One area of focus involves implementing growth mindset and role model interventions to challenge gender stereotypes and enhance STEM engagement among young people.

Through my teaching and research, I am committed to equipping young people with the skills and confidence to contribute to a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable future. I am passionate about fostering environments where all individuals can thrive, empowering young people to become proactive agents of positive change.

I also serve as a reviewer for academic journals relevant to my field, such as the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Journal of Youth and Adolescence, and Social Psychology of Education. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss potential research collaboration.
