Researcher biography

My research explores the interconnections among education, technology, societal dynamics, and policy. It delves into critical inquiries that expand understandings of teaching and learning as not merely intellectual pursuits but also entailing social nuances, emotional depth, relational intricacies, and ideological identities. My research places a spotlight on diverse learning ecosystems ranging from traditional classrooms in secondary schools and universities, to digital learning environments. I draw on a family of sociocultural theories, including Vygotsky and Bakhtin, to illuminate the experience of being both a teacher and a student as complex, relational and deeply human.
