I am currently the lead researcher on a qualitative study exploring Eastern European pupils’ learner identities and aspirations and the role of parents and teachers in shaping these. The project is also seeking to understand pupils' experiences of difference and their negotiations of ‘race’/ethnicity in their everyday and school lives in England.

Before joining King's, I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Porto (2010-2012) on issues of identity, belonging and the educational experiences of migrant pupils in the context of recent intra-European migration.

My PhD study at the University of Cambridge (2004-2009) examined the citizenship identities of young people living in two contrasting border regions of Ukraine in relation to the national politics of belonging and citizenship education policy and practice.
