I have taught English at Key Stages Three & Four, and A level English Language and A level English Literature in north Manchester and south London. Currently I am researching the teaching and learning of Britishness for a doctoral degree at Goldsmiths, University of London. I previously studied for my MA in Education at Goldsmiths. I also co-edit the popular blog The Sociological Imagination. I volunteer for Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND).
