I joined one of the major international accounting and consulting firms after University and qualified as a Chartered Accountant. Over this period I progressed to senior manager and specialised in corporate reporting and audit with a particular focus on Multi National Enterprises.
My career developed further as I then held senior financial roles in companies in the chemical industry. These involved financial management, acquisitions and takeovers. My specialism in IFRS has led me to contribute to the development of assessment for accounting professional bodies.
I began lecturing at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School in 2000. My role developed and latterly I was responsible for managing the student experience at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels with a particular focus on student experience metrics. This role included a wider university contribution to enhancement strategy.
I joined Leeds University Business School in 2014 as Director of Undergraduate Student Education with a particular focus on the strategic development of the Undergraduate portfolio. I am also the Chair of the Faculty Assessment and Feedback Working Group.
My current research interests include the statistical analysis of student feedback with an emphasis on the coherence between student qualitative and quantitative survey responses.
