Research interests

My research interests are in the areas of gender, embodiment, phenomenology, pedagogy and leadership. My PhD thesis, entitled "Reversibility, Dys-appearance and the Telic Demand: A phenomenological investigation of women's experiences of their bodies in leadership", draws on the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty and Leder to explore the experiences and perceptions of the body for those who self-identify as women and self-identify as leaders. My publications to date have been informed by this work. 

In the last few years my research has shifted to the field of education and I am interested in exploring ways in which the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of my PhD intersect with pedagogical scholarship, such as through feminist, critical and embodied pedagogies.
