Personal profile


As Departmental Lead for internationalisation an important part of my role is to help build a truly global environment at the University that interweaves international research collaborations and a diverse student population.

Teaching will always remain the core activity as an academic and I have always sought to develop and refine the relationship between photographic theory and practice, since taking up my post at the University in 2013.

I have taught in a range of Institutions from the University of South Wales, University of Brighton and Goldsmiths University in London. Through the various challenges and opportunities these previous roles, I have developed extensive experience in building a strong research culture that enriches the student experience that is for me, at the core of higher education in the arts.
