I joined Surrey Institute of Education in July 2022, having previously worked in various academic and programme leadership roles in universities in London and Cambridge. I have a background in teacher education, including international teacher development and initial teacher training (ITT). At LSBU and UCL Institute of Education, I led the postgraduate employment-based ITT programmes, working closely with schools across London to enhance school-based mentor provision and local training delivery.
In recent years, due to my research interest, I became more engaged with issues of 'race' equality in educational spaces, and more broadly in inclusive educational experiences for students.
I gained Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA) in 2018.
