PGR Blog Founder

Nicola Robertson

I am a PGR in the School of Education. I write and speak about things which can be broadly construed as Philosophy of Education. I am really interested in robotics and artificial intelligence and what progression in these areas means for our current notions of education. I also love science fiction, and all things French!
