I am a lecturer in tourism and business at Sheffield Hallam University.
I have a growing reputation for excellence in teaching students from various social and cultural backgrounds. I am enthusiastic about student-centered pedagogy and have a proven record of contributing to education delivery across the range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
I engage with faculty, administrators, and students in the attainment of challenging learning, teaching, and research goals. I expertly deliver seminars, student support, online learning resources, assessments, and administration. I offer an impressive reputation for excellence and a passion for providing students with the tools to succeed within chosen careers.
My research and teaching focuses on the tourism industry. I am the module leader for L7 Destination Marketing module delivered to postgraduate students on MSc International Hospitality and Tourism Management.
In September 2014, I was the only person in the Sheffield Business School who was awarded the fully-funded PhD scholarship by Sheffield Hallam's Vice Chancellor, Professor Philip Jones.
In 2017, I completed my PhD in the area of food and destination marketing. I am currently pursuing her research interests in food and tourism, destination marketing and cultural globalisation. My future research agenda entails reviewing and processing the extensive primary data gathered as part of my PhD study and publishing more in-depth analyses from this material. In particular, I would like to more systematically examine questions raised by her PhD, particularly on the issue of “local” food.
