Laura completed a Bachelor of Science in Physics at the University of Liverpool in the UK. Surprised that her interest in physics was not more widely shared among her peers, she went on to complete a doctorate in Science Communication and then started a research consultancy business which she ran for ten years. Alongside this she worked as a professional science presenter. Laura trained as a teacher in 2012 and taught in London before making the move to Beijing with her family. She brings her expertise in communication and educational research into the classroom. Outside school, she enjoys swimming, surfing and scuba diving. She is learning Mandarin and looks forward to exploring China.
