Research overview

My research programme lies at the intersection of online education, higher education, and international education. Taking up sociocultural learning theories and critical approaches to the complex interrelationships between discourse, knowledge, and power, I have aimed to provide more comprehensive explanations of current online higher education, which has been increasingly internationalised. My current research projects focus on understanding and supporting academic and social experiences of non-traditional student groups in online higher education, including: international students, adult students, doctoral students, teachers and educational professionals.
