Personal profile

Research interests

I am lecturer in education and co-director of the centre for Comparative and International Research in Education (CIRE) at the University of Bristol. My research focuses on schooling and school improvement in African and low- and middle-income countries, leadership and pedagogies for inclusive education, and inequalities in knowledge production in education.

I work with education practitioners and researchers around the world, and current collaborative projects include:

I have published widely in my field (see publications) and undertaken commissioned research and consultancies for international organisations, including UNESCO, IIEP-UNESCO, FAWE and others. I welcome requests for doctoral supervision and new research collaborations.
