Professor, Department of Early Years and Primary Education, UCL

The main focus of my research is curriculum and pedagogy. Key areas of my work are the teaching of English, language, literacy, and creativity.

In addition to research in these areas I have extensive experience in music including a position as the first director of Music-Making at Churchill College Cambridge where I was also a fellow.

Prior to joining the IOE I was a senior lecturer at the University of Cambridge, a Reader at Liverpool John Moores University, and a teacher with experience working in London, Bradford and Huddersfield.

He is one of the editors of Exploring Education and Childhood: From current certainties to new visions, to be published by Routledge in June 2015:
