About Research



Mark has worked as a playworker, teacher, youth worker, and psychotherapist before entering academia over 20 years ago.

Since joining the School of Education's Professional Doctorate in Education team in January 2021, Mark also continues in his role as an honorary fellow at the University of Edinburgh.

His research interests lie in the fields of narrative and participatory inquiry and autoethnography, exploring particular issues of agency, voice, border crossing, and boundary spanning.

Mark's teaching and supervision experience centres on qualitative inquiry, critical reflective practices, partnership working, professionality and inter-professionalism, transnational learning, and working with adolescents.
