Reader in Education


I am a Reader in Education in the Sheffield Institute of Education. My research interests include understanding the socio-cultural and individual factors influencing professional and adult learning, particularly in relation to mathematics teacher learning and to doctoral researchers’ experience. Recent projects include narrative studies of experiences of learning on the professional doctorate and analysis of policy and workplace factors influencing opportunities for engagement in mathematics professional learning. I lead postgraduate research in education at Sheffield Hallam University and am Deputy Director of the Education, Childhood and Youth pathway of the White Rose Doctoral Training Programme. I came into higher education after seventeen years’ experience teaching and leading secondary mathematics and six years as a professional development advisor. I continue this involvement with school mathematics through designing and leading curriculum projects and professional learning opportunities for a range of audiences including academics, postgraduate research students and mathematics teachers.
