Head of edtech

My blog posts

Jisc edtech launchpad blog


I'm passionate about widening participation and ensuring everyone has the opportunity to learn. I believe technology can support this.

I manage our edtech activity, working with startups to help our members innovate and meet their long term vision.

I work in Jisc R&D and manage a small team. We focus on 3+ years radical development of new products and services for the sector to suit our member needs.


I enjoy a challenge and have worked in education since 2005, with a focus on reducing local skills gaps. This led to a policy role as head of skills at West of England LEP working at both local and national level.
