Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer in Education Futures at the University of Edinburgh. My research focuses on the political economy of higher education and its digital transformation. I am especially interested in digital markets, EdTech, and datafication in higher education. As the Principal Investigator of an ESRC-funded project, I have led an international team to explore value creation through digital assets in the sector. My interdisciplinary approach intersects economic sociology, science and technology studies, and higher education research.

My current research follows three main themes:

  1. Assetisation and new forms of economic and social value in digital higher education
  2. Platformisation and datafication of post-secondary knowledge production and dissemination
  3. Socio-technical imaginaries and their role in performing the future

I have also been working in higher education policy since 2003 at institutional, national, and European levels. I am still active in higher education quality assurance, acting as an evaluator of national quality assurance agencies and as a consultant on international policy projects.
