I joined Cardiff University in 2007 and I currently hold a lecturer position on the MSc/PG Diploma/PG Cert Medical Education programmes.

Prior to this position, I was Business Change Officer on the Learn Plus project where I assisted with the implementation and management of the event (lecture) capture service at the University.

I have also worked as a Learning Technologist, within the School of Medicine, where I assisted in the design, development and implementation of a number of eLearning courses and programmes.

I have over 15 years’ experience of designing for teaching and learning in a digital age. My research interests include the use of video in higher education, multimodality and sociomateriality.
