Personal profile

Personal profile

I moved to my substantive role of Senior Lecturer in September 2019 after three successive fixed-term periods as Director of Academic Programmes / Academic Curriculum Manager. I served for four years in my last fixed-term role of School of Science, Engineering and Technology Academic Curriculum Manager, starting in August 2015. In the period August 2015 to August 2019, I was the vice-chair of the School Academic Committee and I was the Equality and Diversity Advisor for the School. My teaching and research interests are in the field of fluid mechanics, hydraulics, risk assessment and management, and environmental management and modelling. I teach at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels and facilitate teaching and learning workshops for teaching practitioners. I have successfully supervised 11 PhD and 3 MPhil students, and 2 research fellows. I am currently supervising 1 PhD student.

I played a pivotal role in enhancing students’ learning experience in the School of Science, Engineering and Technology, in my fixed-term roles as Director of Academic Programmes and Academic Curriculum Manager. In these two roles, I worked with the Head of School and managed the School’s portfolio of academic programmes, implementing, and assisting staff in applying efficient quality enhancement, quality assurance, and teaching, learning and assessment (TLA) processes, and facilitated cross-university academic delivery and appropriate student choice regarding areas of study. In 2011/12, I co-authored the University's Enhancement Led Institutional Review (ELIR) Reflective Analysis, with responsibility for writing Section 4 of the reflective analysis. I additionally have experience of conducting academic quality reviews, internally and externally.

As part of contributing to the wider University, I am a member of the University Senate, where I contribute to formulation of policies and strategies and decision making at the University level.
