I'm a highly experienced academic in European and UK education within the subjects of visual arts and communication. I've held a number of academic positions over 20 years, be it international co-ordinator, course leader or subject group leader and enjoy engaging with colleagues and clients alike.

Specialist areas of interest

My teaching is focused across the many genres of photography at undergraduate and postgraduate level. My expertise combines the teaching of concepts and theories of photography with professional industry skills in camera techniques and post-production.

I remain engaged in active research on landscape and conceptual photography.  I am currently completing practice-led PhD studies with the title of "Vestiges of Affect: A Photographic Re-calling of a Forced Migrant Community's Landscapes".
