My teaching interests range from PGCE Diploma Education and Training to the sociological aspects of Military training. I have recently compled a PhD, titled 'Greenies, Growlers and Goffers: The development of the Royal Navy habitus' looking from a Bourdieusian perspective at the experiences of Royal Navy and Royal Marine personnel.
