I joined Aston University as a Teaching Associate in 2010. Most of my teaching takes place in the Languages and Translation Studies section, where I lead and teach modules on Education and Pedagogy (School Experience modules), Business and Economy (IBML modules), and language skills (IBML modules). I also lead and teach modules that are sociologically-focused (both for Language students [LU3001] and Sociology students [LK3031]), which reflect my research interests. My PhD, entitled Representing Religions in Schools: Locating the Self and the ‘Other’ explores the construction of religion and the representation of religious communities in primary education. I am the convenor for Socrel (BSA Sociology of Religion Study Group).
