She has previously been an Assistant Dean (Research Training) and has taught widely across programs in gender studies, sociology of education and qualitative research methods.
Her research in the history and sociology of education encompasses curriculum, youth, gender and feminist studies. Current research projects include a genealogy of adolescence and citizenship education (Educating the Australian Adolescent); a history of school design and pedagogical innovation (both ARC funded); and her ARC Fellowship project is ‘Youth identity and educational change in Australia since 1950: digital archiving, re-using qualitative data and histories of the present’. This project comprises two research strands: an historical study of social science research on youth and educational inequality, and a multi-site qualitative, longitudinal ‘born digital’ study of young people in the senior years of secondary schooling and into the world beyond, called Making Futures."
