I am a Lecturer in the Department of Educational Research, Lancaster University in the UK. I am co-directing the Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning and co-editing a peer-reviewed, open-access journal, Studies in Technology Enhanced Learning. My research programme lies at the intersection of online education, higher education, and international education, concerning accessibility and inclusivity. Using a range of qualitative research methodologies and evocative academic writings, my current projects investigate the academic experiences of diverse student groups in distance education settings, including international students, doctoral students, and educational professionals. My scholarship is primarily influenced by the Foucauldian conceptualisation of discourse, knowledge and power.
