I describe myself as an advocate of research informed practice in education. I work on a wide range of research and development projects including research-engaged schools, school to school peer review, inspection systems, and lesson study. Before moving into full time research I was a Lead Inspector for the Independent Schools' Inspectorate and a freelance researcher. Prior to that I worked at a sixth form college as a  research coordinator.
