Personal profile

Research profile

My doctoral research was a critical study of policy discourses of teacher professionalism in England and Sweden. Through the discursive analysis of policy documents and elite interviews, I explored the role played by policy stakeholders in the construal of discourses of teacher professionalism, the processes of their construction within each social context, and areas of influence and compromise. 

My research interests include teacher professionalism, teachers' work, teachers' professional learning and development, education policy, comparative education, European education systems, narrative inquiry and discourse analysis.
