Research interests

Arts and Humanities Research Council, Global Research Challenges Fund 2019 Award for 'Changing the Story' Principal Investigator. Examining and presenting interpretations of civic national values through voices of children in Kenya and Nepal - a comparative study.

University of Brighton Rising Stars Research and Enterprise Award Winner 2018 for Made in Britain - Uncovering the life-histories of Black-British Champions in Cycling.

Race Equality Charter Mark Steering. Leader for Teaching and Learning sub-group.

Teaching Excellence Framework Assessor.

I taught in Primary Schools from 1999 to 2013 as Head of PE; Head of English and Head of Mathematics. I was also Deputy-Headteacher leading on curriculum, monitoring and assessment. My doctoral research focused on advancing teaching and learning opportunities in Initial Teacher Training and Primary School education through the exploration of cross-cultural encounters for critical multicultural education. I use narrative inquiry as a method for teaching and learning on Race Equality. I focus particularly on the application of 20th century Black-British history and its cross-cultural interaction with White-Britain for helping to advance education, teaching and learning about fundamental British Values (civic national values) and for 'Decolonising the Curriculum'. I take an interdisciplinary approach to my research through education, history, sociology, arts and humanities.
