Welcome to my website. I hope you find it informative and useful. I am committed to working with schools and school systems to raise achievement and to secure effective learning for all students in all settings. I am also passionate about working with schools in the most disadvantaged contexts.
My research areas include: educational leadership; education policy; organisational change; school and system improvement.
In 2009-12, I was a Senior Policy Adviser for the Welsh Government assisting with system transformation and reform. During this time I led the National Professional Learning Communities (PLC) programme that involved all schools in Wales.
Currently, I am working at the University of Malaya, Malaysia, where I am Professor of Educational Leadership and Director of the 'Institute for Educational Leadership'. I am leading a major research project focusing on 7 different education systems (Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Russia, Indonesia and England).
