Education (2017 cohort)

I am a PhD student in the Department of Education and a member of St Anne’s College. My work focuses on how teachers interact with child refugees and unaccompanied asylum-seeking children in UK schools. Through an examination of teacher knowledge, attitudes, and practice, the study will contribute to improvements in policy formation and implementation, and increase teacher preparedness and effective practice in classrooms.

Previously, I worked as a primary school teacher in Aberdeen, London, and at Rose Hill Primary School in Oxford. I completed an MA (Gaelic Medium Education, Oral History) and a PGDE (Primary Education) at the University of Aberdeen, and a BA (Human Geography, Environmental Studies) at Middlebury College in the US. I have a general interest in improving inclusion and equity in education.
