IMBES conference 2018 and award

I'm currently on my journey home after a great time in LA at the University of Southern California for the 2018 International Mind, Brain, and Education Society (IMBES) conference.

There was a fantastic pre-conference for trainees, where I was lucky enough to give a talk about my research in collaboration with teachers, and the public engagement work I've been involved with. Thanks to the Jacobs Foundation I was one of six awardees to be named an "Exceptional Trainee" in the field of mind, brain, and education, in policy and practice. I was delighted to be given the award, and am thankful for the appreciation of work that is not always recognised in this manner within academia. I'm looking forward to continuing more work that brings science to education, with the help of teachers.
