Since gaining my Doctoral Degree (Personality and Moral Reasoning in Young Offenders) in 1993, I have worked for several Universities including 14 years spent at De Montfort University in Leicester where I taught a variety of modules including Psychology & Education and Biopsychology. I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2013.
My main interests are focussed around applying Psychology to Educational settings. I am currently particularly interested in the use of comic books as an instructional tool in educational settings. To this end I have written a Biopsychology textbook in Comic book format aimed at Undergraduate students.
