About

My work focuses on comparative educational policies and practices, particularly with regard to marginalization and social justice. Drawing on interdisciplinary approaches I have conducted research on language issues, gender and education and youth research in countries such as Namibia, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania and more recently focusing on the EU. From 2008-2014 I was the coordinator of the Gender Equality, Education and Poverty, funded by NORAD. The project focused on critical questions surrounding gender equality, equity, and education within a context of poverty in post-conflict South Africa and Sudan. My scholarly contributions to the field of Comparative and International Education includes serving on the Board of Directors for the Comparative and International Education Society along with being a member of the Executive Committee of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies.
