Personal profile


I first joined the University of Huddersfield in 2008 as a part-time lecturer in the School of Applied Sciences. Alongside this role, in 2009 I was appointed as an Academic Skills Tutor within the School of Human & Health Sciences Academic Skills Development Team. I continue to hold both roles within the university. My first degree was in Biochemistry at the University of Manchester. This was followed with research at the University of Leeds where I completed a PhD characterising androgen-sensitive nuclear proteins. I continued at Leeds with post-doctoral research studying and characterising membrane dipeptidases. I subsequently moved into a teaching role as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Leeds and an Associate Lecturer for the Open University. I have taught across a range of biological science disciplines in addition to related science and maths skills. I have a keen interest in developing strategies for teaching & learning which led to the completion of a PGCE in Lifelong Learning at the University of Huddersfield.
