Senior Lecturer, University of Lincoln

I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Education, responsible for the School's post-graduate research programmes.
My research focuses on co-operative education, workplace democracy and alternative forms of higher education, contributing to a number of sub-disciplines and contemporary research themes in the social sciences. These include the sociology of work and critical labour studies; critical social theory; the sociology of education; the co-operative movement, social movements and activism; and the sociology of technology and information. Most recently, I have started to undertake research into craft education, with a specific focus on the teaching and learning of lutherie in the UK through the routes of autodidacticism, apprenticeships and vocational education.
