Personal profile

Research interests

My research is in the sociology of education and education policy. I am interested in identities and inequalities of &lsquo;race&rsquo;, gender and social class within compulsory and post-compulsory education. For example, I have conducted research on issues concerning Muslim pupils, British Chinese pupils, urban young people and schooling and on widening participation in higher education. I am also interested in feminist theory and methodology.My 2010 jointly authored book (with Heather Mendick and Sumi Hollingworth), was on Urban Youth and Education (Open University Press), and I am currently directing a 5 year longitudinal ESRC project (with J. Osborne and J Dillon) on children's science aspirations (ASPIRES) and am lead coordinator of the ESRC funded Targeted Initiative on Science and Mathematics Education (TISME).<br /> <br /> I am on the editorial boards of Sociology, Gender and Education, Journal of Education Policy, Qualitative Research in Psychology and Teaching in Higher Education.
