Having worked in a range of higher education roles since 2008, I started my teaching career at the University of Sheffield, delivering employability activities across a range of projects and disciplines. In 2015 I started teaching ethics to undergraduate engineering students, before moving to Leeds University Business School in 2018. My specialist interests are in developing student employability, supporting students from backgrounds that are typically under-represented in the sector and use of innovative pedagogy in the pursuit of teaching excellence.
