My primary motivation for becoming an academic is the opportunity to contribute to social change . 


I’m a Senior Lecturer at Bournemouth University in South-East England, in the Faculty of Media and Communication in the Corporate Marketing Communications department, where I lecture in politics, media and communication. In previous roles, I have also lectured in journalism and new media but could not resist a personal invitation to apply for a role as lecturer after completing my PhD in media and cultural studies at Salford University in 2014.

My primary motivation for becoming an academic is contributing to social change by embedding social justice and equality within my teaching and research. My research interests are focused around political discourse, raced and gendered constructions and representations in media and popular culture, inclusion and liberation in educational practice and the dynamics of race, ethnicity and culture in higher education. In addition to a full-time academic role, I am the Founder of Black British Academics, an established network of academics committed to tackling racial inequality in the higher education sector.

This website is primarily focused on my academic identity and activities, but I have other websites which can be accessed through slides on the homepage.
