Research Summary

I work as Senior Research Officer at UCL Institute of Education. My research focuses on topics such as citizenship, global citizenship education, global learning and development 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 contexts, including dropping out from school. 

I am currently:
* Lead research and evaluation: Global Learning Programme England.
* Lead monitoring and evaluation: Schools for Future Youth project (SFYouth) EU-funded.

I have also worked on projects / research contracts:
* Background reports for UNESCO GEM on teacher education for sustainability and global citizenship; national policies on teaching and learning; donor skills strategies.
* Survey development for ICS/VSO
* Cambridge Review paper on global learning and sustainability in primary schools.
* Global Dimension in Initial Teacher Education (DFID)
* Evaluation of the Rights Respecting Schools Award (UNICEF)
* The Consortium for Research on Educational Access, Transitions and Equity (CREATE)
*Innovative People: Developing a typology of youth-led innovation and its potential economic and social impact (NESTA)
* Personalising Learning: the learner perspective (BECTA)
* Schooling citizens: a study of policy in practice in South Africa (DPhil)

I carry out both qualitative and quantitative research and evaluation. I do a lot of survey design and analysis (using SPSS), 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.
