Contacting me:

I joined Keele Management School (KMS) in 2011 as a Lecturer of Management having previously worked as a sessional Lecturer/Tutor at Keele. I am now Director of Learning and Teaching overseeing all teaching, learning and student experience within the school, a member of the School Leadership Team and a Senior Lecturer of Management.

I was awarded my PhD from Keele in 2011 for my work on Apprenticeships and young male workers (ESRC funded). Since 2004, I have also achieved a MBA, Masters in Research (ESRC funded), Post Graduate Certificate in Organisational Change and Management Development and Post Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. In 2015 I was awarded Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and in 2016 Keele Excellence Award in recognition of my teaching expertise.

Prior to my career in academia, I gained extensive managerial experience, to Senior Management level, within Food and Consumer Goods Manufacturing Industries working for large and small organisations. My expertise is within the field of European supply chain, production planning, operations and project management.

I am a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute.

My research interests are around education and learning. I regularly present at teaching and education conferences on the themes of student transitions, student engagement, internationalisation and using technology to enhance the learning experience.  I have published journal articles and book chapters on apprenticeships and research methods.

I am currently module leader and lecturer on a number of modules across undergraduate and executive course including;

  • MAN10018 Management in Context
  • MAN20083 International Supply Chain Management and
  • MAN40070 People, Processes and Operations.

I also supervise PhD students in the area of Quality Management, Operations and Supply Chain.

In Keele Management School we recognise that starting university for the first time is both an exciting but daunting prospect for students (regardless of their age). We therefore build into our early modules activities and support to help with this transition period. One example is the StudyWrite interactive learning modules which are a fun way for students to gain understanding of academic scholarship.
