She has published widely in the field of inclusion in higher education, including a recently authored book chapter in Hinton-Smith’s (2013) ‘Widening Participation in Higher Education: Casting the net wide?’ This body of work formed an ‘Impact Case Study’ and an individual submission for the 2014 REF.
