Education Studies

Post-Doctoral Scholar and Assistant Professor of Education Studies

Using interdisciplinary approaches, my teaching and research address contemporary educational assumptions through philosophy, political theory, cultural studies, and pop-cultural critique. My current project explores how sensations can generate open-ended pedagogies and circumvent constrictive approaches to the body, focusing on the textures of teaching and learning as well as the politics of knowledge production.

I enjoy collaborating with others on a variety of educational issues. Empire and Education, originally a special issue in Educational Philosophy and Theory, was recently published as an edited book. Particularly fond of science fiction and its creative capacity for philosophical inquiry, I contributed a chapter to Childhood, Science Fiction, and Pedagogy: Children Ex Machina. My work has also appeared in Policy Futures in Education, Educational Philosophy and Theory, and Review of Education, Pedagogy, and Cultural Studies.

Believing that theory can indeed be fun and collaborative, I have cohosted Collective Intellectualities since 2021. Available on major platforms and produced in conjunction with the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia (PESA) and PESA Agora, Collective Intellectualities is dedicated to lively discussions with scholars and public intellectuals on the future of education.
