I have fifteen years experience in digital pedagogy, strategy, and implementation working across a variety of sectors including business delivery and education. 

Working as part of a UK wide team of subject specialists, I currently help members to assess and develop institutional and staff capabilities, working in partnership with senior leadership to influence change and deliver solutions.

Academic qualifications and awards underpin my in-depth knowledge and experience that have enabled me to lead teams in multiple organisations, to successfully scope, design and deliver high-quality learning and development activities.

My research interests include digital leadership, institutional change, online curriculum development and virtuality, including the use of augmented and mixed realities.
