I am a Senior Lecturer in Creative Technologies in the School of Creative Technologies at the University of Portsmouth and have worked in HE for 16 years. For 10 years, I ran a successful eLearning and Education Consultancy with clients in both the education and commercial sectors. Following this, I was a Course Co-tutor / Associate Lecturer on the MSc in E-Learning at the University of Edinburgh. I came to the University of Portsmouth in 2011 as an Academic Skills Tutor in the Faculty of CCi, and more recently as a Senior Lecturer in Higher Education in Academic Development (DCQE). 

Research Interests

My areas of research interest are based in digital games and education. I am currently undertaking a Professional Doctorate with the School of Education exploring digital and non-digital games as a psychosocial moratorium for identity tourism from different diversity groups (such as ASD), and the implications for education. 

I am a member of the Advanced Games Research Group and the Faculty Pedagogic Research Group.
