About me

I am a doctoral student studying international and comparative higher education. Prior to moving to Sweden, I spent over five years advising and teaching first-year and non-traditional university students in the United States. I utilize psychosocial student development theories to investigate ways in which higher education curriculum influences holistic learning and development.

I am currently researching academic exploration and student self-efficacy during higher education, student transitions, curricular efforts designed to encourage student development, and access to higher education programs. I actively participate in the Adult Learning Research Seminar and the Stockholm Higher Education Research Network (SHERN).

Reed currently teaches introduction to university teaching courses through the Centre for University Education (CeUL).
