I am an educational professional with considerable experience across both compulsory and post compulsory education settings. My PhD, completed at The University of Nottingham in 2008, focused on interventions that support students who go into higher education from disadvantaged backgrounds. Social justice influences much of my research work and I have numerous publications including nine book chapters and six journal articles that explore notions of ‘fit’ within higher education. I co-authored a book titled Young and Homeless: Exploring the education, life experiences and aspirations of homeless youth and a Cabinet Office funded evaluation of interventions used to support homeless young people back into education. In my current role, I lead a team that delivers developmental opportunities for staff and doctoral students across both their teaching and research responsibilities. I have a keen interest in the student experience and strive to find opportunities to support the dissemination of effective pedagogy in higher education.
