My teaching philosophy prioritises a student-centred approach. I shape my teaching practice around students' individual interests and progress. I am a Fellow of UK Higher Education Academy (Advance HE).


I completed my interdisciplinary PhD in Digital Innovation at Highwire Centre for Doctoral Training, Lancaster University. My research focused on information and interaction design for "second screen" to enhance TV football watching experience. I am on course to expand on my research around information design and multitasking.
