I am a Lecturer in Marketing at Newcastle University Business School.
I am interested in consumer behaviour, particularly in personal finance management, spending, and savings habits. My PhD thesis explored consumers' lived experiences of using payday loans and other types of high cost credit. Branding and communications are also a personal interest, having designed and implemented several rebranding/branding activities for SMEs in industry.
I am passionate about design and creativity in the workspace and beyond. I have worked in design and marketing at management level in several industry sectors including; not-for-profit, low carbon/zero emissions engineering, military and aerospace engineering and cosmetics.
