About me

About me

I am Lecturer in Education and programme lead for the MSc Education at the University of Stirling.

Previously, I have taught and led on programmes relating to educational theory and practice, childhood studies, social change, and post-14 teacher training.

My PhD explored posthuman approaches to the curriculum and demonstrated how philosophy and artistic practice can be employed as a navigational tool to rethink and re-imagine education for the 21st century and beyond. It can be found here: https://eprints.lancs.ac.uk/id/eprint/160080/

I am a guest tutor on the annual Posthuman Summer School (University of Utrecht) and currently editing a special issue of Cultural and Pedagogical Inquiry on posthuman education (University of Alberta).

I am currently external examiner for BA Studies in Primary Education at Newman University and BA Action on Poverty and Hardship at Staffordshire University.


Posthuman and new materialist approaches to education, anti-fascist pedaogies and curriculum, democratic education and social justice, inter-and transdisciplinary learning.
