I have been teaching social science and humanities subjects in the higher and further education sectors for over 20 years. Having completed my doctoral thesis in 2004, I taught at the University of Warwick, the Open University, and most recently at King Edward VI College where I was Curriculum Leader for Law and Social Sciences and Foundation Programme Lead. My research interests include migration, identity, diversity/inclusion in education, and decolonisation of the curriculum. I am currently a writer and reviewer for the Level 3 Access to Higher Education Diploma working on the Diasporic Studies subject set. I am a Member of the Chartered College of Teaching and, having taught students from 16-80 years of age, I love finding new ways to support students in their learning and reaching their potential.


I am teaching on the module Empire, Migration, and Diversity.
