Current Research Interests

Pedagogy, Geography and Spaces of Education

My research builds on my innovative practice in curriculum, learning and assessment design to theorise and reflect on how critical and hopeful spaces for transformative learning can be created in lecture theatres, classrooms and in the field. This research is grounded in my teaching practice and the partnerships I develop with students to advance understandings of experiential learning, the field as a key site of place-based learning, and the use of innovative assessment design to support student co-creation.

Everyday Multiculturalism and Geographies of Encounter

My research contributes to interdisciplinary scholarship on racism, encounters, conviviality and tolerance. My research contributes to scholarship in cultural and creative geographies, using experimental methodologies and creative outputs to examine how space is shared and urban publics are produced.
