I am lecturer in educational leadership at the University of Manchester's Institute of Education (MIE). My research focuses on international and globalising educational leadership and global citizenship education. My research is interested in equity, distinction and power. I approach my research though a phenomenological close understanding of context, and a critical analysis. I often draw upon the work of Pierre Bourdieu to pick apart educational issues, but also utilize the work on other critical theorists, such as the those in the Frankfurt school.
I am an active member of BELMAS, and work within the Critical Educational Policy and Leadership RIG.
In my current postion at the University of Manchester I am responsible for developing the blended Masters in Educational Leadership in Practice, working with the Univeristy of Manchester Worldwide on global rollout of this extraordinary masters.
