I joined LSBU in 2016 from Goldsmiths, University of London, where I was a researcher in the Faiths & Civil Society Unit. Here my experience in community development and Sociology combined in research projects exploring the role of religion in the public sphere. Prior to this, I taught RE and Sociology at secondary level and worked in community development as a researcher and facilitator.
My role at LSBU combines my teaching and research expertise. I teach across UG and PG courses in education and lead the RE element of the Primary PGCE. I also supervise doctoral candidates.
My key research interests are around religion and worldviews in education and education for intercultural citizenship. In 2015 I co-led a project, RE for REal, which helped lay the foundation for the recent Commission on RE and the proposed National Entitlement.
Current projects include an international research symposium on religion & worldviews education and citizenship. This collaboration with Manchester and Dalhousie University (Canada) brings together researchers to explore the relationship between teaching about religion and worldviews in schools and student understandings of citizenship.
I lead LSBU's Education for Social Justice research group, which brings together research and practice across formal and informal education to promote inclusion and social justice.
