  • About

    I have taught in Higher Education since 2005 and joined the teaching team at Hallam in early 2017. This teaching experience has been gained at a variety of Higher Education Institutions including a 'Big Ten' university in the USA, teaching Higher Education in Further Education, and for a leading university in the UK.

    I am in the final stage of completing my Doctorate in Education with a focus on how professional footballers conceptualise bullying as banter and teasing within their context. To this end, my main research interests revolve around how professional and semi-professional sportspeople understand their social relationships and their resultant impact on mental health and sporting performance. I have experience of delivering presentations at conferences and has completed radio interviews on the application of sports psychology.

    I am also experienced in the development of other degree programmes across the UK and has completed various external advisory, panel member and external examiner roles.
