Biography

I am a Lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow, and Programme Leader for the MSc in Education, Public Policy and Equity. I was previously a Research Grants Council Post-doctoral Fellow at the Education University of Hong Kong, and a Visiting Researcher at the University of Sydney and University College London. 

I am an editorial board member for the journals Global NetworksBritish Journal of Sociology of Education, and International Studies in Sociology of Education, and regional editor for the Journal of International and Comparative Higher EducationMy work is interdisciplinary, and has been published in journals across the fields of education studies, sociology, and geography. These include Higher Education, Sociology, Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, and British Journal of Sociology of Education, among others. 

My research is broadly related to the sociology of international higher education, with a particular focus on China. I have published extensively on international student mobility between Africa and China. I am also interested in social inequalities (rural/urban) in transitions to the labour market from higher education, and issues of academic freedom in the Chinese context.
