The more specific aspects of my research focuses on the organisation of teaching and learning in schools where structures and participation emphasise Māori preferred pedagogies.
My research interests examine the impact of culture indigeneity in 21st century understandings of social development. From this I introduce a range of tools and concepts from cultural analysis and sociopsychological theories and apply them to the field of education.
