Teaching and learning
Lucy is an education explorer and international education consultant. She taught science at a secondary school in London before completing a Master’s in Education at the University of Cambridge. She then spent time working in schools and living with teachers in six 'top-performing' education systems; the basis for her book, ‘Cleverlands: the secrets behind the success of the world's education superpowers’, one of The Economist’s ‘books of the year 2016’. On her return, Lucy wrote a book on teacher career structures for IIEP UNESCO.
She now works as part of a team advising foreign governments on education reform at the Education Development Trust.
Andrea is an Investigator Scientist at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge. Her research focusses on examining theories of learning by using behavioural and functional brain imaging techniques (MRI and EEG/MEG) with the aim to understand the cognitive and neural mechanisms that support episodic and semantic long-term memory in humans. Andrea started her training in Germany, received a PhD from the University of Edinburgh and had a fellowship at Cardiff University before joining the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in 2011.
Andrea has been teaching a variety of courses in Cognitive Neuroscience and is conducting a number of memory-related research projects. She has been awarded a fellowship at Wolfson College and is a guest lecturer at the Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge.
Duncan completed his training at Durham and Nottingham, before holding fellowships at Oxford, Royal Holloway and Cambridge. He now leads a research programme at the Medical Research Council’s Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge, which explores the neural and cognitive mechanisms of attention and working memory in typically and atypically developing children. He uses various methods to explore how brain systems develop through childhood, in typically developing children, children with disorders of attention, children with genetic mutations, and children with problems in classroom learning.
His work has been supported by the Royal Society, the British Academy, the Medical Research Council, and various charitable foundations. He serves on the Editorial Board of Developmental Science, is an Editor at the Journal of Neuropsychology and in 2016 Duncan was awarded the Early Career Prize by the British Association of Cognition Neuroscience.
One of the founding figures involved with the launch of Content and language Integrated Learning (CLIL), he has experience of tasks in over 40 countries, contributed to over 150 publications, and received 7 degrees and awards from England, Estonia, Finland and Spain.
In recent years his work has involved designing educational change management processes (K-12 through to higher education). His current work-in-progress is The Children of Cyberspace: Towards a New Understanding due for publication in 2018.
Alex Bellos is the author of several books of popular mathematics, and sport, that have sold in excess of 400,000 copies worldwide.
