I am the director of the Centre for Postgraduate Studies at Rhodes University, South Africa, where we offer a range of development opportunities for postgraduate students and supervisors. I am also a visiting research professor at the Center for International Higher Education, Boston College, USA.
My research interests focus on the role of higher education in society, who gets access to the powerful knowledge in the academy and what constitutes 'powerful knowledge'. I also have a particular interest in doctoral education and postgraduate supervision. I am the project manager of a national supervision programme: www.postgraduatesupervision.com
