I am a science educator and educational researcher. I have developed an online learning environment about Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. Currently, I study learning processes in the domain of Einsteinian physics.
Science educators weave together diverse disciplines such as cognitive, natural and learning sciences, linguistics, and philosophy. To this eclectic mix, I add my strong background in mathematical physics. I have studied both physics and mathematics in Göttingen which - during Einstein's time - was one of the world's leading centres for mathematics. It was here that Einstein gave a week-long series on his evolving theory of general relativity and that I, 100 years later, got introduced to his extraordinary ideas.
My understanding of modern physics combined with my teaching experience at university level enable me to develop modern learning resources that will hopefully ignite a passion for science among many. My multidisciplinary approach allows me to conduct research on learning processes and conceptual understanding with a fresh perspective. It is so exciting to unravel how learners wrap their minds around curved space and warped time.
