Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are around educators' experiences of their work, particularly in relation to the policy context. My PhD explored the experiences of grassroots youth workers in England in a changing policy context. I am currently writing a book based on my thesis, provisionally entitled 'Grassroots Youth Work: Policy, Passion and Resistance'. As well as being involved in research on youth and community work, my interests include: informal education; radical education; surveillance; equality in higher education; emotional labour; activism and resistance; practitioner research; participatory research. I draw on research and theory from a number of areas including critical education policy sociology, feminism and activist scholarship.
