Having completed my academic stage of legal training at the College of Law Guildford I joined Portsmouth Business School to lead the development of its Intellectual Property Law curriculum at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I am member of the European Intellectual Property Teachers' Network and sit on the UK Intellectual Property Offices' Universities Working Group. I have provided extensive mentoring to student and graduate startups through my award winning IP Clinic scheme. I have also helped the University secure over £100,000 in external grant funding and supervised research in the field of intellectual property up to PhD level. In recognition of my outputs I have received an outstanding achievement award from the University Vice-Chancellor.
I am the academic lead for the University's Intellectual Property Law programmes. I have also held other senior positions at the University including Course Director for the Postgraduate Law and the Non-Executive Director Training Programmes. I have also led the University Business School's widening participation efforts.
My research interests include employability, enterprise and entrepreneurial education with a particular focus on how a knowledge of intellectual property law can transform the ability of student and graduate entrepreneurs to achieve their business goals.
