I am an international researcher and practitioner committed to furthering social justice and human rights. My interest is the relationship between learning and social change, especially the ways that pedagogical design and processes contribute to personal and social transformation in the field of law, human rights and international development.

I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education and interested in developing pedagogical processes and an environment which supports all student’s personal and academic development, promote inclusive practice and collaborative learning, enables and promotes reflective practice and critical thinking. I am currently taking a Diploma in Coaching.

I offer diverse experience, having over the years have worked as a lecturer and tutor in law and international human rights at the Birmingham City University (2003-07) and the University of Warwick (2009 – 2016), a Learning and Development Consultant for international NGOs, including Oxfam Novib and VSO International and as a Land and Property Officer for the United Nations in East Timor. My interest is in the design and facilitation of collaborative learning processes. I started out my career working as a paralegal in criminal law and police station defence adviser. I have worked in East Timor, Tanzania, South Africa and Ethiopia. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Institute of Reconciliation and Social Justice at the University of the Free State in South Africa.
