Research Associate
Cardiff University


I am a WISERD Education Researcher based at Cardiff University. The ESRC funded my Masters and PhD at Cardiff University’s School of Social Sciences. My PhD explored the experiences of British African Caribbean men who attended elite universities in England and Wales.

I also hold a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from American University, Washington, DC, a Dual BA in Communications and Political Science with a minor in Public Administration from the State University of New York at Binghamton.

Before joining WISERD, from 2014 - 2016 I worked as the Research Associate for the Global Access Post-Secondary Education Project (GAPS) for the University of Newcastle Australia and Pearson UK, PLC. Our research explored issues of access, inequity and mobility within tertiary education globally. Before that I served as a development, training and funding officer for two Third sector organisations in Cardiff where I was successful in raising over £800,000 in grant funding.

Prior to living in the United Kingdom, I worked as a Consultant for the United States Federal Government where I gained seven years of experience with the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Education and the Department of Justice.

In addition to my research responsibilities I am also a Freelance Consultant, who delivers training to public and private organisations on issues ranging from Equalities law and the 2010 Equality Act to Trustee Roles and Responsibilities.
