Personal profile

Research interests

I am Professor of Higher Education and Gender in the Department of Education. My research utilizes feminist, new materialist and posthumanist theories and methodologies to explore gendered inequalities, spatial practices, and staff and students’ participation in a range of higher educational sites. I have a keen interest in using trans- and interdisciplinary methodological innovation to further gendered social justice in education. My latest co-edited book is Posthuman Research Practices in Education (with Christina Hughes) and I am co-editor of the journal Gender and Education.

My research interests include: 

  • Space, place, materialities and affect
  • Gender and power
  • Posthumanist and new material feminist theory, methodology and research practices 
  • Student engagement practice and ethics
  • Higher education transitions
  • Creative, sensory, and collaborative research practices
  • Academic writing practices
