I work as Senior Research Officer at UCL Institute of Education. My research focuses on topics such as global learning and global citizenship education. I'm also interested in democracy in schools, human rights and student voice. Previously I've worked extensively on access to education in developing country contexts, including dropping out from school. 

I carry out both qualitative and quantitative research and evaluation. I do a lot of survey design and analysis, often with a focus on impact evaluation. I am also very experienced in qualitative data collection and analysis. I have written a number of research papers and journal articles.
