Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Education PhD Researcher interested in understanding how primary school children come to reflect their ocean learning into the everyday through storying with objects, and how longitudinal ocean learning experiences may enable an ontological turn towards children’s understanding of the human-ocean relationship as human as ocean.
