Research interests:
My research interests focus on gender justice, education, and development. Most of the work I have done focused on issues regarding women’s development through education. My key concern is to understand the implications of gender, economic, social and political inequalities, their bearing on education and the ways in which development and gender justice approaches can provide a route into such thinking. I also have a keen interest in working with marginalised, disadvantaged and vulnerable communities and exploring how formal/informal education in such communities can be used to achieve sustainable development and support sustainable livelihoods. Alongside these issues, I have also kept up an interest in methodological issues such as feminist research, online research methods, participatory action research.
