Research

My doctoral thesis - Where do History Teachers come from? Professional knowing among early career history teachers - examined the nature and origins of professional knowing in in UK teachers of history in state secondary schools. 

Other research interests include history education, histories of childhood, teacher education (international or UK based) and higher education pedagogy and practice. I am also interested in the Life History as research methodology and the use of life history archives in education such as the Mass Observation Archive.

I have knowledge of education systems in China, Japan, Finland, Nigeria, Ghana and Kazakhstan

I am an experienced doctoral supervisor and examiner and welcome approaches from qualified applicants in any of these fields or methodologies.
