Research & Service

My research interests focus on the following areas:

- Global Studies in Education
- Comparative and international education;
- Internationalization of Higher education;
- Cultural globalization and education policy;
- Postcolonial theories of identity, representation and education;
- Global inequalities and educational policy; and
- International student mobility.

More recently, I have begun working on Indian higher education and the ways in which it is engaging with the challenges of globalization and the knowledge economy.
