With a background in teaching and creative computing, Claire is currently working with the National Centre for Computing Education and is a Postgraduate Researcher at Leeds University. Her research focuses on ways that physical computing and ‘maker education’ in schools can impact on children's learning and well-being. Her teaching background was broad as a Technology subject specialist in secondary education, before transitioning to link with special educational needs as a senior leader in school. That goes some way to explain her interest in promoting equity in computing and valuing diverse communities with The Foundation for Digital Creativity, an organisation she co-founded in 2017.
