I am a Lecturer in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, a member of the Centre for Research in Digital Education, and Programme Director of the MSc in Digital Education. My research interests include digital education in HE, ICT4D, and educational mobility. My research examines the mobilities exhibited by groups and sectors in flux and how technology is used to both structure and manage these mobilities: post-Brexit, with greater concentrations of international students, displaced peoples, and refugees, with the unbundling of labour and education, and with global edtech regimes unmooring local educational expertise and higher education as vehicles for social mobility.
