Brianna has a PhD in neurophysiology and a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education. The quality and impact of Brianna’s work is recognised through multiple teaching awards up to national level and award of Senior Fellowship of the UK’s Higher Education Academy. Brianna conducts and publishes education research that investigates the impact of authentic scientific curricula on student learning and experience.

Louise and Brianna are long-standing collaborators in learning and teaching, including teaching, curriculum development, and education research. Their partnership is built on shared commitment to providing students with the best possible opportunities to gain up-to-date physiology knowledge while also developing their research and communication skills, thereby empowering graduates to make important contributions to science-related fields and society-at-large. Louise and Brianna have developed and taught award-winning authentic scientific curricula focused on supporting students to take on the role of a scientist. It became apparent through their teaching that there was a paucity of fit-for-purpose resources to support students in their journey of scientific discovery, and development of scientific research and communication skills. Louise and Brianna enthusiastically embarked on a journey to fill this void, resulting in this etextbook How to Do Science.
