  • Research Associate
  • IOE - Learning & Leadership
  • UCL Institute of Education
UCL Subsidiary Supervisor

I come from an inter-disciplinary background, having obtained a BA in Politics and International Relations (Baku State University), followed by an MA in Mass Communications (University of Leicester), and a PhD in Sociology and Social Policy (University of Leeds). Most recently, I have obtained a Certificate of Higher Education in Philosophy from Birkbeck, University of London. 

I am currently a Research Fellow at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Pedagogy (0-11 years). My academic interests coalesce around questions of morality and ethics and efforts to achieve equity, justice, and fairness in educational contexts. My commitment to promoting education for all finds expression in my work with the Brilliant Club, a charity that supports under-represented students to access and succeed in higher education.

Research Summary

My area of expertise cuts across the sociology of education, moral philosophy, and critical realism. My first book, "Ethical Consumption: Practices and Identities. A Realist Approach", is a critical realist account of ethical consumption seeking to explain the development of individual moral identities in social contexts. At present, the main focus of my research are curriculum design; student rights, voice and agency; moral issues in education. 

Teaching Summary

I am Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy with experience of teaching a range of sociology modules. Between 2016 and 2018, I co-taught a course in critical realism to master’s and doctoral level students at the UCL Institute of Education. At present, I supervise MA and PhD dissertations as well as co-teach a postgraduate distance learning course on Values, Vision and Moral Purpose in educational leadership. My teaching experience also includes teaching philosophy to primary and secondary pupils as part of my work for the Brilliant Club.
