Research Summary

My   research  interests  focus  on  academic and professional  identities  in  higher  education and changing workforce patterns.  Completed  projects  include  an international  study for  the  Leadership  Foundation  for  Higher  Education  (LFHE)  on  Professional  Managers  in  UK Higher  Education:  Preparing  for  Complex  Futures  (2008);  an  LFHE-funded  study  on  Staffing  Models  and  Institutional  Flexibility  (2013);  and  a study  for the UK Higher  Education  Academy on  Shifting  Landscapes:  Meeting  the  staff development  needs  of  the  changing  academic  workforce (2016). I am currently Principal Investigator on a Centre for Global Higher Education (CGHE) project entitled The implications of a diversifying workforce for higher education systems, institutions and individuals. I have  published  an  edited monograph  (with  George  Gordon)  on  Academic  and  Professional  Identities  in  Higher Education:  The  Challenges  of  a  Diversifying  Workforce  (2010),   a  single-authored monograph,  Reconstructing  Identities  in  Higher  Education:  The  Rise  of  Third  Space Professionals  (2013),  and a further monograph with George Gordon on Reconstructing Relationships in Higher Education: Challenging Agendas (2017). I edited Higher Education Quarterly between 2007 and 2017.
