Overview

I am a human geographer with research intersts in education, work, and gender. I am Director of the Exeter Education Incubator.

Before joining Exeter I held a Hallsworth Research Fellowship for outstanding early career researchers, at Manchester University. I was awarded this fellowship to research the changing career structures and professional identities of scientists working in Universities. At Exeter, through my research into teaching and learning, I have continued to investigate the practices of Universities and their place in the ‘knowledge economy’, undertaking funded research on student-academic partnership and inclusive educational practices.

Broad research specialisms

Social studies of knowledge and learning, higher education, research ethics, ethics and care, work and employment, gender

I am a member of the Graduate School of Education's Centre for Research in Professional Learning (CRPL).
