Director of Centre for Postgraduate Studies, Rhodes University

I am the director of the Centre for Postgraduate Studies at Rhodes University where we offer a range of development opportunities for postgraduate students and supervisors.

My research interests focus on the role of higher education in society, who gets access to the powerful knowledge in the academy and what constitutes 'powerful knowledge'. I also have a particular interest in doctoral education and postgraduate supervision. I am the project manager of a national supervision programme: www.postgraduatesupervision.com
