  • Lecturer (School of Education)

Biography

I am a Lecturer in International and Comparative Education based in the School of Education.

My other current roles include:

I am interested in how societies transition from conflict, violence and authoritarianusm to justice, peace and democracy. My research interests thus centre around (1) historical, epistemic and relational (in)justices, especially in and through education, (2) education for peace and justice, and (3) youth and community engagement to establish lasting and just peace. 

I am currently co-leading an ESRC-funded project on building capacities of international actors for youth inclusive peace processes and leading projects on peace/peacebuilding education in non-democratic and conflict-affected states.

My first monograph, titled "Pathways towards justice, reconciliation, and sustainability within Indigenous education: A framework of justice for marginalised populations," is under contract with Routledge.

I joined Glasgow in January 2020 and until December 2021 I was Research Associate in Education and International Development, working on a large multi-country project at the Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC), University of Glasgow, funded via UK Research and Innovation as part of the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund. We worked with partners in seven countries (Bangladesh, China, India, Rwanda, the Philippines, South Africa, and Tanzania) investigating inequalities in education, health, and livelihoods created by rapid urbanisation. As part of SHLC, I co-led a project on educational planning to achieve Education 2030 with partners in Bangladesh, the Philippines, and Rwanda, in partnership with UNESCO IIEP (2021-2023).

We recently completed an ESRC-funded project on youth engagement in peace processes, the report for which can be found here as well as a GCRF-funded project on lifelong learning with partners in Benin, Kenya, Rwanda and a British Academy-funded project on local and place-based approaches to peacebuilding, the reports for which will be available soon.

I have a wide-ranging and varied professional experience in research, policy development, curriculum design, and programme and project management with education institutions, governments, multi-laterals, and foundations/NGOs across the world. Prior to joining the University of Glasgow in January 2020, I worked as a consultant, leading a project on peace and sustainability in Asia-Pacific for UNESCO Bangkok, in partnership with the Governments of Japan and Thailand, and a consultant co-leading a project on prevention of violent extremism for UNESCO MGIEP, in partnership with the Australian Government. My other key research projects and publications have focused on the rights, education, and wellbeing of Indigenous peoples, ethnic and religious minorities, women in complex and sensitive contexts, and other vulnerable populations.

I have conducted extensive fieldwork in Taiwan, Ethiopia, Hong Kong S.A.R., Scotland, Russia, and Brazil and have worked with research partners in Africa (Benin, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, South Africa), Asia (Bangladesh, mainland China, India, the Philippines), and the Pacific (Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand). As part of my role at UNESCO Asia-Pacific, I worked with UNESCO’s Member States in Asia and the Pacific.

In 2023, I was Conference Chair of the 2023 conference of the UK Education and Development Forum (UKFIET) on the topic of "Education for Social and Environmental Justice: Diversity, Sustainability, Responsibility." From 2021 to 2023, I was an Academic Lead of the Low and Middle Income Countries Research Network.
