My primary research area is encompassed within the concept of research utilization. As a scholar in this area I am interested in exploring the use of research generally, as well as applying research to inform policy and practice.
As such, my work follows three strands: 1) scholarship examining the use of research by teachers (specifically the barriers and facilitators to such use); 2) applications of research to inform policy and practice (particularly through research syntheses); and 3) policy analysis (analysis and critique of current education policies using a research informed framework).
