Biography

I am the Programme Leader for the International Master in Adult Education for Social Change (Erasmus Mundus):

 http://www.gla.ac.uk/postgraduate/erasmusmundus/imaesc/theprogrammeandhowtoapply/

 I am interested in how adult education, across a variety of contexts (workplace, higher education, community) can work as a tool for social change and individual empowerment. 


Research interests

I completed my Ph.d. at the University of Toronto in 2008, and was a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Post Doctoral Research Fellow at York University (Canada) from 2008 to 2010. My interdisciplinary research draws on adult education, labour studies, migration studies, women’s studies and arts-informed research traditions to explore issues related to informal learning, migration and the labour market. Since 2001 I have presented my research at more than sixty national and international conferences, and have published my work in academic journals and edited books. I am the co-author of the book, “About Canada: Immigration” (Fernwood Publishers, 2011). My SSHRC-funded doctoral research examined how “Canadian work experience” requirements function to regulate immigrant professionals access to the labour market and contribute to the racialisation of the labour market; racialised immigrants are over represented in low skilled, low paid jobs despite their often superior educational credentials and international work experience. My interest in these issues has grown out of my experience working as an Electronics Engineering Technician at a global electronics manufacturing company.
