Personal profile


After completing my degree I went on to study for a PhD at Leeds University under the supervision of the internationally renowned Professor John Blundell. The main focus of my PhD was the impact of different nutrients on body weight gain, and on behaviour. I also collaborated with a number of pharmaceutical companies, which do not disclose the results of their research.

My first Lecturing position was at Sheffield University, where I was a junior lecturer. I was involved with the delivery of biopsychology at all levels of the degree programme. After 2 good years I moved on to Leeds Trinity where I became a senior lecturer, and the director of Research Methods. I spent 3 years at Leeds Trinity, during this time I helped them reshape the degree programme and introduced a lot of novel teaching methods including the use of Virtual Learning Environments. Whilst at Trinity I developed my interest/research into video games.

I moved to Huddersfield in August 2007 and took up the position of senior lecturer in psychology. I am currently involved with a number of research projects, PhD supervision, and module leader for a number of modules in the undergraduate degree programme.
