I am a core member of Hope's Centre for Culture and Disability Studies and currently Year Lead for Level H of our undergraduate Disability in Education programme. I also teach on our MA and Doctoral programmes.
My research focuses on the relationships between disability, dyslexia, identity and literacy practices. I am particularly interested in exploring emerging digitally-mediated literacy practices, and the impact of new literacies on how we conceptualise dyslexia. I am also interested in the way digital technologies offer new research tools and new ways of thinking about research methods and methodologies. Most recently, I have been making innovative use of digital archives for participatory research into the history of learning difficulties.
