Personal profile


I am a teaching-focused Senior Lecturer in the Division of Medical Education.  

Since November 2021 I have been working as the Academic Theme Lead for Digital skills and literacy with the University's Flexible Learning Programme team.  Supporting student and staff digital capabilities is one of the aims of the Flexible Learning Programme and included in Our Future, the University’s strategic plan.  I received a University of Manchester Teaching Excellence Award in 2023 for 'Educational Leadership' and Flexible Learning & Digital Delivery' for this work.  I was appointed as the Flexible Learning Lead in the School of Medical Sciences in July 2023.  

My areas of interest include supporting student and staff digital capabilities, digital wellbeing, digital inclusion and the applications of playful learning in HE.
