I joined the University of Aberdeen in October 2008, initially as a Research Fellow and subsequently as a Lecturer in Education. I am involved in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels as well as supervision of PhD research students.

Before coming to Aberdeen, I spent time as Staff Associate and then Lecturer in Education at the University of Malawi, and also as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and history at secondary level in Malawi.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Education (Humanities) from the University of Malawi in 2000, and obtained an MA in International Education from the University of Sussex in 2003. I completed a PhD at the University of Nottingham in 2008 with a focus: “Teaching practice as a component of teacher education in Malawi: a socio-cultural activity theory perspective”.
