I’m a researcher interested in issues around information, agency and equity. My research focuses on:

  • Political information behaviour, political participation and citizenship
  • Information/news/media/digital literacy
  • Critical approaches to education and librarianship
  • Social justice, access, equity and inclusion in education and information

I currently work as a Research Associate at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. I co-founded Voices for the Library, a UK-wide public libraries advocacy organisation, and am involved in the Radical Librarians Collective.

    I do appreciate your research interests and the rigorous work on library advocacy is a welcome feature in social justice activism
