Research Interests

My research interests in adult literacy education are concerned with policy,  digital inclusion and professional learning for educators. I use a range of concepts of methods,  including critical ethnography, new materiality, community-based research and policy network analyses to explore how policies are enacted within neo-liberal governance, and how digital literacies and new technologies are implicated in adult learning, equity and  governance. 

I am a research associate at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives policyalternatives.ca and blog about adult learning policy at adultlearningmatters.wordpress.com
