About me

About me

I am a Lecturer in Education and I teach on the Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programme within the Faculty of Social Sciences. My research interests include: inclusive education, policy implementation and early childhood education. Prior to joining the University of Stirling, I completed my PhD in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow where I also held teaching and research positions. My doctoral research looked at policy enactment in the field of inclusive education from a complexity perspective. More specifically, I studied the implementation of a Scottish policy on behaviour support in schools exploring the perceptions of key agents.

Prospective research students interested in inclusion, education policy and early childhood education would be particularly welcome.
