UCL Subsidiary Supervisor

Prior to joining UCL Institute of Education (IOE) as Lecturer in Geography Education in 2014, I was a secondary school geography teacher in the UK and Singapore. My research is driven by an interest in the lives and geographies of children, with a particular focus on education and educational spaces. My doctoral research investigated the value of children’s geographies to geography education in schools and I am interested in the relationships between (children’s) geographies in different spaces of thought – everyday life, geography as an academic discipline and geography as a school subject.


At the IOE, I have led Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes at a subject level, including PGCE Secondary Geography, as well as tutoring on the MA Education (Geography). I convene a 3rd year undergraduate module ‘Geography Education’ for students in UCLs Geography department. I have also taken broader leadership roles across ITE in mentor development and partnership, and retain a research interest in mentoring.


I am a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers (FRGS) and a committee member of the RGSs Geography and Education Research Group (GeogEd) - https://geogedrg.org/. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).
