Career Highlights

Teaching Interests

My main focus at present is the development of an innovative chemistry curriculum that best serves our students, combining subject knowledge with wider skills. I have a Postgraduate Certificate in University Teaching and Learning, am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and see my role as supporting students’ learning rather than simply teaching.
