Assistant Professor in the School of Education

What area does your research focus on?

My research interests include writing about English as an Additional Language and issue related to teacher wellbeing and retention, beginning teacher educators and their experiences in the academy. I regularly write articles and chapters on many aspects of primary English and EAL for ITE and primary school practitioners. I am currently undertaking a doctoral study on addressing teacher mental health and wellbeing at Durham University. 

What are the other key aspects of your role?

I have 24 years’ experience working in different sectors of education, including extensive experience of teaching and learning in primary schools (England and India) as well as in UK higher education. I am the Curriculum, Assessment and Student Experience (CASE) Lead for PGCE Primary Education programme. I lead and manage the weeklong International Reflective Practitioner Conference (masters level) along with teaching English on undergraduate and postgraduate Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes.  

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, walking, travelling and reading, spending time with my husband and dog. We make regular use of our National Trust membership exploring our cultures and history particularly during the summers.

What do you think you could particularly offer mentoring support with?

Developing your confidence to take ownership of your research journey and story with the HE. Navigating white dominated research and policy spaces as an ethnic minority researcher by understanding organisational politics in order to take informed decisions at all levels.
