I am a lecturer in Biomedical Science and am interested in developing our approaches to teaching and learning both in biomedical science and across the university. My work on teaching and learning has received both national and international attention and I am currently interested in developing enquiry and problem based learning in a laboratory setting. I run the final year project for the Biomedical Science programme.
I am Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Society of Biology
I started my career with a degree in Microbiology at the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in 1985 and moved northward to do my PhD in the Kinetics and Mechanism of Penicillin Acylase at the University of Newcastle. After a Post-Doctoral post at Dundee University, I joined Abertay University as a lecturer in 1993.
Outside of University can usually be found mountain biking, climbing or skiing.
