I am a PhD candidate in Physics education focusing on Inquiry Oriented Learning in Secondary, Tertiary and outreach program with the Sydney University Physics Education Research (SUPER) group. I have been a member of the group for a number of years and presented conference talk and posters and submitted journal articles.
I obtained a Masters in Space Studies (MSS) from the International Space University (ISU) in Strasbourg, France. Subject areas studied include: science, physics, engineering, biology, and chemistry of space as well as business, law, management and applications of space science. In this course, I was selected by the European Space Agency to conduct a team research project on a student parabolic flight campaign.
