I have drawn on my Physics degree at Edinburgh University, where I was taught by the great Professor Peter Higgs, to teach Physics at secondary schools since 2001. I built up an inventors’ lunchtime activity base at my last school called the Heath Robinson Club, where various mad contraptions were developed. Such creative ventures continue to inspire me. I also enjoy classical music and play french horn in the Harrow Symphony Orchestra. Before entering the teaching profession, I spent several years in Russia, working with a missionary organisation across all the countries of the former Soviet Union. I am happy to be able to draw on my wide range of experiences to bring life and interest to students of Physics at the college.
