I am a former newspaper journalist and education correspondent, who moved into teaching in 2010.
I teach and lecture at the Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism at Nottingham Trent University, running seminars for a range of modules - and am currently module leader for our Democracy in Action and Sport Journalism modules.
Currently working towards HE Fellowship, my most recent Masters was completed with distinction at the University of Bradford in Peace, Conflict and Development Studies. My dissertation looked at journalism and its influence on conflict, with particular focus on Syria and a range of media institutions. I am currently considering PhD options also.
I have keen interests in sport, music and am constantly looking for new research opportunities related to the media, peace studies and education. I am also the Trustee of an education, arts and music charity based in Leeds, UK, that supports young people excluded from mainstream education.
