I am a Lecturer in Education, providing lectures, seminars and distance learning across undergraduate education modules, and the full- and part-time PGCE (PCET) courses. I was also a module convenor on the Masters in Educational Practice (MEP). My intellectual interests are in inclusion and special educational needs, further education, disability studies and visual impairment.

I completed my PhD studies in January 2015. Prior to this I completed the PGCE (PCET) in-service course, and the Masters in Social Research Methods.

Before returning to university in 2008, I worked in education and social services departments across South Wales. I worked with children, young people and adults with disabilities, and had a special interest and Rehabilitation Officer qualification in working with visually impaired people.
