Personal profile

Research interests

I am a lecturer in Comparative and International Education with a special focus on education in Africa. I previously worked at the University of Cambridge where I co-founded the African Education Research Database. I serve on the leadership team of the UKRI GCRF-funded research network Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures, which is funding 60 Southern-led projects in Rwanda, Somalia/Somaliland, South Africa and India.

My research and teaching focuses on the processes of schooling and school improvement for disadvantaged groups (particularly with respect to inclusive pedagogies, curricula and leadership), and addresses inequalities in knowledge production on education. I welcome doctoral supervision and research collaborations in these areas.
