Profile

My research over 25 years has focused upon theorising within history of education in relation to higher education, gender, transnational methodology and influences on school curriculum as well as childhood studies.  A second research pathway has emerged from commissioned collaborative research on school readiness; child health, youth, education and training through my role at EIT.  Much of this research aims to contribute to improvements in education or health services and is intended to reduce disparities in Māori education and/or health outcomes.
