On Wednesday, 27 June, SMGS Head of Faculty – Mathematics and Movement, Dr Adam Lloyd’s journal article, “Parental Influences on Those Seeking a Career in STEM: The Primacy of Gender”, was published in the International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology.

The journal article, of which Adam was the lead author, is based on his research over the last few years while at the University of Newcastle.
