I have been at Keele since 2015. Prior to joining Keele, I worked in higher education in Bahrain and in primary and secondary education. In 2013, I received a PhD in Education from Exeter University. I also have an MA in English Philology, BA in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, PGCE, PGCert in Professional Studies in Education and I am a fellow of HEA.
I am interested in the following research areas:
Theme: Higher education markets, international policy borrowing, the scope and nature of HE business. Within this theme, I focus on:
• priorities that drive HE developments internationally.
• What capitals are being produced?
• How do priorities that drive HE investment affect the role of international input.
• Theoretically, this work is located in temporalities and spatialities of higher education policy making.
Theme: Critical Policy Studies, political frameworks. Within this theme, I focus on:
• Marginalisation of international students in British HE policy – from the political and historical perspective.
• The role of policy representations of international students in their HE experiences.
• Most recently, the TEF as an opportunity for greater equivalence of international students.
Theme: Migration and minority communities: This is a new area of research I am developing, focusing on:
• Immigration from the EU.
• Issues of identity and belonging of EU children in schools.
• Impact of stereotyping about EU migrants on education experiences of ‘white’ and ‘non-white’ minority students.
• Issues of attainment.
• Issues of policy and practice associated with the above.
