This blog is my space to natter at irregular intervals about things that catch my attention here and there. I am passionate about educational support and inclusion at every level. In my day job, I am a research staff developer, designing and directing a portfolio of developmental opportunities for research staff. I previously consulted on social innovation and social impact measurement. I, therefore, have the unique ability to evoke successive reactions in people who meet me for the first time: curiosity, followed closely by utter bamboozlement, and finally bemusement at my love for discussing tangential subjects related to education and social impact! In a shameless attempt to convince you of my credibility, here are some examples of my research outputs and international dissemination activities.

When I am not otherwise being deluged with researcher development matters, my personal pursuits revolve around embracing languages and cultures of the world. I consider myself a ‘multi-potentialite’ and ‘multi-localite’. I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoyed writing them. Please do comment and join the discussion. I’d love to hear from you, so do feel free to contact me via LinkedIn or Twitter or leave a comment below. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Thanks for following my blog. Your research sounds interesting, and as an added interest (for me) I am Northamptonshire born and bred so it’s good to see such important research coming out of my neck of the woods 🙂


    • Much gratitude for your kind words – and lovely to hear of a fellow Northamptonian’s success in undertaking a PhD. Your blog is very readable and very easy for me to relate to. I look forward to continually being inspired by it 🙂
