Research overview

My main interests are in digital technologies, social justice and in/equality. In particular, my work focusses on how inequalities may be manifested and reproduced in everyday uses of digital technologies. Previous projects have included research into digital inclusion, digital pedagogy, inclusive pedagogical design, digital literacy including online safety; and digital innovation.

PhD supervision

I am interested in receiving PhD proposals in most areas related to digital technologies, education and learning. I'm particularly interested in digital inclusion; disengagement; disability; accessibility; social uses of digital technologies; digital literacy; online safety.

Current Teaching

I am a lecturer on the e-Research and Technology  Enhanced Learning (TEL) doctoral programme. On the TEL programme I convene ED.S822 The Development of Professional Practice and ED.S826 Researching and Reflecting on Technology Enhanced Learning in Educational Settings. I also supervise doctoral students.


Career Details

I began work at Lancaster University in September 2012. Prior to that, I worked at Futurelab, Bristol, the Department of Education, Oxford University and the London Knowledge Lab, UCL/Institute of Education. I also completed my PhD at the London Knowledge Lab.
