Overview

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

I was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in 2016. I won a Students' Guild Teaching Award in 2013 for my work supporting student engagment and was awarded a University of Exeter Teaching Fellowship Award in 2014. I was a member of the review panel for the QAA's most recent review of the Geography Subject Benchmark Statement (QAA 2014).

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 will be continuing to investigate the practices of Universities and their place in the ‘knowledge economy’

I coordinate a network for academics in teaching focused roles in Geography, Environmental and Earth Sciences. I am a member of the International Network for Learning and Teaching in Geography HE.

Broad research specialisms

Social studies of knowledge, the knowledge economy, 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).
