I completed my doctoral study at University of Leeds, Centre for Disability Studies in November 2011. I am an independent researcher and my research interests include inclusive education, disability arts and representations, disability and gender, and disability hate crime. In November 2013 my book ‘Disabled International Students in British Higher Education: Experiences and Expectations’ was published by Sense Publishing House. I have published articles in international journals such as Disability and Society, and Equality Diversity and Inclusion, and have contributed to several collected edition books as well as various UN initiatives. Currently, I work for the Alliance for Inclusive Education, researching the effectiveness of accessibility plans in secondary schools in England. I also continue with researching, publishing, campaigning, lecturing and delivering workshops specifically on inclusive education issues.
