Danielle is a DPhil student researching how Black-British doctoral students navigate the spaces of the elite, providing a new theoretical framework to understand their agency better.
Her main interests are in Human Flourishing, Cultural Geography, Psychology, and Justice, and her work aims to inform and reform educational frameworks and practices.
Following Danielle’s BSc in Psychology and MRes in Research Methods in Psychology, she founded a social enterprise that merges psychological and academic strategies to guide undergraduate and master’s students study practices. In addition to this, Danielle provided pedagogical and behavioural support across SEN college, secondary and primary schools.
Some of Danielle’s notable work includes her research introducing a new University-wide EDI strategy at her former Higher Education institution, presenting insights and way-forwards on youth homelessness to HRH Prince Williams, and providing discipleship to next-gen leaders.

Gavin Killip is Professor of Buildings & Energy Policy at Nottingham Trent University and an Honorary Research Associate at the Department of Education’s Research Centre for Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance (SKOPE).
Gavin’s research is motivated by finding solutions to climate change, particularly in relation to energy efficiency and energy systems in buildings and cities. He has an interest in the development of supply chains and business models, which intersects with issues around jobs and training in the construction sector. Gavin has previously collaborated with SKOPE colleagues on the state of provision for construction training in the FE sector. He has worked with innovators in the construction sector on new courses and with industry bodies on the wider policy context for the energy system and the built environment.
Gavin was previously a Senior Researcher at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford before taking up a professorship in the School of Architecture Design & Built Environment at Nottingham Trent University. As an Honorary Research Associate, Gavin seeks to deepen the existing links with SKOPE, bringing closer together the research on construction skills and the practice of HE and FE on the ground.
Gavin is interested in the relations between further and higher education in the UK and in similar wealthy countries with liberal market economies.

My PhD project is in Education (University of Warwick, UK), and I hold an MA in Global Education and International Development (University of Warwick), an MA in Linguistics (University of Aleppo, Syria), and a BA in English Language and Literature (University of Aleppo).
My research lies broadly within the field of International Higher Education and Development, and I also have experience of different areas of Education Studies. I am particularly interested in studying patterns of global mobility and knowledge exchange, interactions between education, conflict and reconstruction, and the role of higher education in recovery in conflict settings.
I have teaching experience across different themes of education and international development, with interest in qualitative research methods and diary research.

Ilka Vari-Lavoisier is a Research Fellow on the project ‘International Student Mobility and World Development’ and a member of the Comparative and International Education Research Group’ led by Maia Chankseliani.
She brings to the Department a decade of experience researching international migration, as well as her expertise in transnational mixed-methods research design.
Ilka holds a BA in Political Science (Science Po, Aix-en-Provence), a joint master’s degree in Social Sciences (ENS/EHESS, Paris), and a PhD in Sociology from the École Normale Supérieure, Paris (France). Ilka held Fellowships at Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Trento before joining the University of Oxford. Since 2018, Ilka has been collaborating with various constituencies of the University, including the Migration and Mobility Network, the Department of Sociology, and the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography.
Ilka’s research focuses on the migration and development nexus (visit her website for more information). Over the years, she developed an interdisciplinary approach to international migration in collaboration with economists, anthropologists, geographers, sociologists, social psychologists, and cognitive scientists (see her publications).
Her research at the crossroads of the cognitive sciences and social sciences played an active role in the launch of the Cognition & Migration project. This initiative, supported by the Fiske Lab at Princeton University and COMPAS, at the University of Oxford, received funding from the University of Pennsylvania in the US, the IC Migrations, and the FMSH in France, as well as the Refugee Studies Centre, Lady Margaret Hall and Nuffield College, in the UK. This project developed into a transnational empirical research endeavour involving over thirty scholars from different fields (see PLAN project for more information). As the principal researcher, Ilka supervised the design and implementation of this project led by the CEE at Sciences Po and COMPAS at Oxford (see last publication here).
Based on experience supervising multi-method and multi-sited data collections over four continents, Ilka taught research methods at UPenn, the Universite Cheikh Anta Diop, the University of Luxembourg, and the University of Oxford, with a focus on web-based surveys and mixed methods research. She has a keen interest in hybrid pedagogy and has been developing a range of hybrid teaching material over the last few years.
