My interdisciplinary scholarship encompasses family sociology and early childhood education. Family diversity and the novel family relationships, forms of relatedness and processes of kin differentiation that are generated through the use of assisted reproductive technologies are ongoing research agendas. The ways in which early childhood education settings become places where every family experiences belonging and wellbeing is a core theme in my work. How early childhood teachers might engage in socially just and inclusive practices, including anti-racism advocacy, while addressing issues of exclusion are related themes. Heteronormativity and sexuality and gender matters in the early childhood sector are also focus areas.
