- I originally studied music and trained as a professional soprano, before performing for a short while and then moving into music teaching.
- I subsequently studied as a postgraduate at the University of Cambridge, before working there in the Faculty of Education as a postdoctoral researcher, and also in Cambridge University’s Centre for Applied Research into Educational Technologies (CARET).
- I was Director of Studies for the Sociology of Education at Homerton College, University of Cambridge for several years.
- I then spent a year working as Researcher to the Director at the Institute of Education, University of London.
- I took up a Lectureship at the University of East Anglia in 2007, where I established and led the BA (Education) for five years.
- I moved back to the Institute of Education in 2012 (which merged with UCL to become the UCL Institute of Education in 2014) where I am a Senior Lecturer in Education.
I mainly carry out research in the area of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment, with a special focus on the sociology of technology and its impact on children and young people. I am a member of the Privacy Expert Group of the Biometrics Institute and co-author, with Professor Andy Phippen of Plymouth University, of the book Invisibly blighted: the digital erosion of childhood (IOE Press, March 2017).
