Lecturer in Education, University of Bath

I am interested in the schooling experiences of children in poverty in the UK, and have explored the material, cultural, social and mobility 'binds' that prevent children from achieving in school. My Educational Binds of Poverty: The Lives of School Children book was shortlisted for the BBC Radio 4 British Sociological Association Ethnography Awards 2015. My most recent projects consider the spatial dimension of educational inequalities; educational policy analysis through exploring schools' role in responding to children's mental health and a study into schools' support children who experience irregular school transitions.
