About

My research interests include professional learning and knowledge transfer in the context of migration and transnationalism, migrant education, prior learning recognition; politics and pedagogies of difference. I employ a range of qualitative research methodologies such as life history research, critical discourse analysis, institutional ethnography and participatory action research in my work. I am currently on Sabbatical (until June 30, 2019). With a UBC Killam Faculty Research Fellowship, I am conducting a research project entitled “Adult learning, Knowledge Transfer and Identity Politics in the Migration of Professionals” during my sabbatical year.
