About Me

Hi, welcome to my website!

My name is Rachel (she/they), and I am an Educational researcher and Lecturer in the School of Education at Durham University.

Prior to my role at Durham, I was the module convenor and lead tutor for the Maths and Chemistry modules in the Department for Lifelong Learning at Sheffield University where I taught mainly-mature widening participation students. While working at Sheffield, I completed a part-time PhD in Education titled “Technology and technology-enhanced learning: Age differences in use and attitudes”. I’m also a journal reviewer, and lover of learning, education, and Yorkshire Tea!

I also run a YouTube channel with over 700,000 views (and counting) where I put up free maths and science videos: Science Made Simple
