About me

I was a primary school teacher for eleven years and now teach primary education and supervise post graduate research at UWE.

My principal research interests are teacher professional development, pedagogy and classroom learning. My doctoral research used Complexity Thinking and social network analysis to analyse small-group classroom learning. 

I am the founder and Director of a UWE social enterprise initiative called Project Zulu which runs several projects to develop educational aspiration and opportunities in South African township schools. These include pedagogy and teacher education, computing, engineering, health and Special Needs education, sports coaching and various student teaching programmes. I co-ordinate research across these activities along with regional government and university partners.

I have held governorships at several local schools and was a founding Director of Cathedral Primary School in Bristol. Until 2018 I was a trustee of St George's Bristol.
