Assistant Professor in English Education, University of Nottingham

I have researched and published in the areas of language, literacy and cultural practices, with a particular focus on the way in which these relate to the agency and identities of individuals and communities.

Recent research includes a British Academy funded ethnographic study of the everyday lives and literacy practices of families living on a Midlands council estate. This research was the focus of an article which won the Wiley-Blackwell Research in Literacy Education Award 2015 and will be featured in a forthcoming book.

I am a member of the UKLA Research Committee and a book review editor for the journal Literacy.
