Personal profile

Biography

I am currently the Director of Teaching, Learning and Student Experience in the School of Human and Health Sciences at the University of Huddersfield.  Prior to this role, I was Director of Teaching in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the Open University.  During my time at the Open University (2006-2019), I focused on the production of distance-learning materials for entry-level introductory Social Science modules winning a number of prizes and nominations for this work including: European Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Social Sciences and Humanities (2018/2019) and being shortlisted for the Most Innovative Teacher of the Year in the THE Awards 2017. 

Research Expertise and Interests

My research interests fall into two broad areas of research which are connected by a focus on citizen participation.  My first area of research expertise is Spanish politics with a specific focus on issues relating to democracy and democratisation including historical memory and transitional justice and social movements.  My second area of research expertise is local governance in England with a particular focus on devolution, combined authorities and metro-mayors in Greater Manchester and the Liverpool City Region.
