Dr Aaron Teo is a Singaporean Chinese first generation migrant settler living on unceded Jagera and Turrbal lands. He is a Sociologist of Education working as a Lecturer in Curriculum and Pedagogy at the University of Southern Queensland's School of Education. Aaron is Convenor for the Australian Association for Research in Education Social Justice Special Interest Group, Queensland Convenor for the Asian Australian Alliance, 2023 winner of the Carolyn Baker Memorial Prize, and the State Library of Queensland's 2024 John Oxley Honorary Fellow. His research focusses on the raced and gendered subjectivities of migrant teachers from “Asian” backgrounds in the Australian context, as well as critical pedagogies in white Australian (university and school) classroom spaces. Aaron is interested in qualitative research methods, particularly the use of critical autoethnography as a-way of reflexively interrogating experiences at the nexus of migration, racism, sexism, and multiculturalism in the Australian education context.
