My PhD explores the relationships of dominance and subordination in the context of race and identity in legal education and I was recently involved in the research team for the Living Black at University project. I am currently researching inclusive pratice in Higher Education and decolonising all aspects of the student experience. I regularly write for WonkHE on issues relating ot inclusion and previously was a contributor to the HuffPost.
