My field of research and teaching is Education and International Development, specialising in critical peace education and participatory research. My doctoral reseah explored critical peace education as the interactions of a multifarious understanding of peace and practices to facilitate moving these understandings forward (the work of translating peace) in conflict effected communities in Mindanao.The commitment to social justice, ethics and participant representation found in my seminal research form the foundation of my research commitment and driving motivation behind my research trajectory to date, which has seen me progress onto contributions to research projects exploring the theoretical resources, processes and benefits of co- designed/constructed/produced research and the role of teachers in peacebuilding.

My current interests are in critical peace education, education and conflict, social justice and postdevelopment initiatives and theory. I have experience in qualitiative research methodologies, particularly specialising in ethnography, co-consructed and participatory research and arts-dased methods.
