I am a Human Resources professional with experience in public and private sector organisations.  I have worked in diverse environments and have taught groups of learners in the workplace, in Further and in Higher Education, from level 2 to Masters.  Before starting an academic career, I served as a commissioned officer in the Royal Navy and worked in manufacturing companies (fabrication and FMCG), providing HR Business Partner support and HRM/HRD generalist service.  I am a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

Teaching Responsibilities

I have over ten years’ teaching experience, lecturing in learning & development, HR business context, applied HRM & HRD, and research methods.  Employed as a Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management, I teach mainly on professional HRM & HRD postgraduate programmes. I have been Course Manager for the full-time MSc in Human Resource Management and the MSc HRM/HRD Top-Up (research methods/dissertation programme).  I have supervised more than 25 Masters students to successful dissertation completion.


I am studying for a Professional Doctorate in Education. My research interests include Postgraduate taught student experiences, and learning in the workplace.
