Biography

I am a Lecturer in Education and Academic Head of Learning and Teaching in the Department of Culture, Communication and Media.

I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, I hold the Master of Teaching from the Institute of Education, and a Magister der Philosophie in Anglistics & Americanistics and French from the University of Vienna, Austria, and I also hold the postgraduate IoLET Diploma in Translation.

After my first degree I worked as a secondary teacher of modern foreign languages and taught English and French in Austria and German and French in the UK. Having gained several years of practical experience in the classroom I made the move from secondary to higher education.

Underpinned by my interpretation of human communication relying on the metaphorical understanding of the world, my PhD research on academic identity uses participatory and creative approaches to data collection and analysis to capture what is difficult to express in traditional interviews.
