About

I am Professor of Career Education and Head of iCeGS. I am responsible for overseeing the development of the research and education programmes run by the Centre. My research interests are careers policy, the evidence base in careers work and the role of technology in career development. I am also interested in careers work and social justice, the role of appearance and attractiveness in career and the careers of researchers.

I am a member of the UK Careers Sector Strategic Alliance, a Winston Churchill Fellow, a Fellow of National Institute for Career Education and Counselling (NICEC) and I'm on the editorial board of the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling.I was the specialist adviser to the House of Commons Education Committee inquiry into career guidance.

I also write the Adventures in Career Development blog.

I teach on the University's MRes, EdD and New Route PhD programmes and I'm available to supervise EdD and PhD theses in areas related to career, career development and the educational use of social media. I've recently supervised a thesis on mentoring disadvantaged young people and another on the career transitions of working class men.
