Areas of expertise My area of expertise is concerned with globalisation and education, in particular the emergence of education as an area of trade as part of the knowledge economy and the role of digital technologies. I also research state restructuring of the education sector, focused particularly on new forms of governance (such as public private partnerships) as well as changes in the nature of teachers' work in the compulsory and higher education sectors.
