Projects per year
My primary research interests lie in understanding education in relation to social and epistemic justice. I work with historical, social-cultural activity and decolonial theoretical perspectives. My fields of research include professional learning, international education, and the long-term impact of educational experiences. My doctoral thesis was a historical, socio-cultural examintion of how how people become teachers finding that trainee teachers' learning (about teaching) leads their (professional) development.
My research aims to equitably involve participants as co-constructors of knowledge in participative and experimental methods of qualitative research and mixed methods research. My research has been funded by The International Baccalaureate, to investigate the long-term impact of the Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, and the British Academy, to critically examine the teaching-research nexus in higher education. I received the Jeff Thompson Research Award from the International Baccaluareate Organization in 2017.
