My research and teaching activity concerns education and religion. I have been involved in a three year transnational European Erasmus Plus funded exploration of Religious Education and Diversity (READY) - a project which has included school and faith community visits in Austria, England, Germany, Sweden, and Switzerland, along with discussion about the various Education systems.
I am a graduate of the University of Glasgow, UK; Princeton Theological Seminary, USA; and the University of Durham, UK, from where I graduated with a PhD (Religion); and from the University of Edinburgh, UK (Education). I am a qualified Secondary RE teacher and have taught in Scottish schools.
I am Head of School of Education at the University of Aberdeen, UK, where I lead a vibrant School/Faculty with research and teaching activities which range from: Early Years Education; Counselling; Initial Teacher Education; and Mindfulness; through to research degrees, such as PhD.
