I am a senior lecturer in Early Childhood Studies. I was recently awarded Student Led Teaching Fellowship for
Most Inspiring Teaching (2013) by ECS students. I was also awarded the
Vice Chancellor's Staff Award for Excellence (2011) for my Forest School and outdoor learning community and student engagement work through the development of an Outdoor Learning Centre. In addition to my lecturing role; I initiate and co-ordinate related projects within our campus woodlands in partnership with local primary schools and other external partners. I joined the university as a Lecturer in 2008, and previously worked in a diverse range of roles and settings in education and business. My current research interests stem from connecting theoretical perspective and real life practice through current active engagement with external stakeholders on a range of projects providing scope for strategic insight. As an early career researcher I have participated in capacity-building research and enterprise projects, strategic insight partnerships funded by WERN, ESRC and HEFCW which have informed wider teaching, learning, innovation and awareness of knowledge transfer benefits in theory, practice and policy.
