Research Interests

Informed by extensive practitioner experience, my research and teaching focuses on the professional formation of educational leaders through dialogic praxis. I prioritise educative processes that privilege lived experience and a concern for the humanity of leadership. This has led me to develop and teach postgraduate coaching and mentoring qualifications, to research tertiary pedagogies for leadership formation, and to explore the centrality of context in change leadership, leadership for social justice, and educational governance.
