Personal profile

I am a Professor of Education in the Graduate School of Education, Nazarbayev University (NU). I moved to NU from the Centre for International Education, University of Sussex where I convened the internationally regarded MA in International Education and Development, successfully led PhD students to completion and (co-) lead funded research in a range of contexts in Africa, Asia and the UK. My research addresses an area of international priority – the links between identity construction and education and the ways this impacts on social and gender relations. My research encompasses education policy, curriculum texts, teacher education and youth. I have a rapidly growing international reputation for my research, including evidence of international policy impact, alongside a strong track record of publications and significant grant capture.
