Program Type



My program of research concerns the governing of early childhood education - including the regulation of early childhood teachers, services and initial teacher education programs - and the impact this governance has on the provision of quality, accessible and inclusive early childhood education. I welcome expressions of interest from HDR students keen to undertake research in this area.
