Personal profile

Research interests

I am Deputy Head of the Department of Education and have over 20 years of experience as a Lecturer in Education undertaking research, consultancy and teaching.

My research interests relate to 'childhoodnature' and children’s participation and I have published widely in the fields of environmental education, education for sustainability and Global Citizenship Education. I have been involved in numerous educational research, evaluation and development projects over many years mostly with schools, students, teachers and leaders. Much of this research has focused on children’s and young people’s voice by employing participatory methodologies in school contexts.  

I also have expertise in curriculum development in primary and secondary school education and in higher education including an Environment and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project, 'Listening to Children: environmental perspectives and the school curriculum' and a Teachers in Development Education (TIDE) funded international project 'Cities Project: creative curriculum development'.
