Activities per year
I started my higher education first in linguistics and language education. After working with a charitable organisation supporting people with severe learning difficulties, I was drawn into the field of special needs education and inclusive education. I became increasingly interested and motivated to understand and explore ways to improve education particularly for disadvantaged and marginalised children. My academic knowledge and skills are contextualised by an MPhil in Educational Research from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Education from the University College London Institute of Education. Before joining UWS, I also worked in international education (China and UK) for more than 2 years.
