I am Professor of Higher Education and Gender in the Department of Education at the University of Bath, and lead the Reimagining Education for Better Futures research group.

I currently serve on the Editorial Boards of Teaching in Higher Education, Critical Studies in Teaching and Learning and Journal of Posthumanism. My latest books are J. B. Ulmer, C. Hughes, M.
