Principal Lecturer in Media and Public Relations and Department Lead for Learning Teaching and Assessment


Thinking about how we learn and engage with new ideas and activities is central to working with my students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I love the enthusiasm and engagement and it is great to see people move beyond their own expectations into new areas outside their 'comfort zone'. By working with peers across the Department and beyond on LTA we continue to develop and share our professional practices and share our passions for our subjects. My own research practice looks at the relationship of visual media as evidence of historical events and how we interpret the work of individual artists.

Together with Claire Abson in the Learning Centre I am looking at the history of the Special Collection relating to the 1951 Festival of Britain. Myown research includes finishing writing a paper on a British Artist Thomas Hennell and a pedagogic paper on what as lecturers we can learn from the TV series The Call Centre.
