Biography

I have researched and taught in the area of online human behaviour for 18 years, looking into the design, usability and impact of digital products as well as uses of the information that they collect. I have worked at Keele since 2014 in the School of Computing and Mathematics, holding the roles of Programme Director and Director of Education. My work has received funding of around £1.67 million equivalent from funders such as the AHRC, EPSRC, HEFCE, OfS and KTP and I have an established national profile in Education, recognised through Senior Fellowship of the HEA.

I have previously worked as a Principal Lecturer at the University of Greenwich, and a Researcher at City University, London.
