Personal profile

Research interests

My professional background is in management development within the financial services sector. I am the Deputy Head of School for Education and Student Experience and a Principal Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour at Brighton Business School. My main academic interests are exploring the role of Higher Education Institutions, and specifically business curriculum, in developing students employability in the context of pre-professional indentity; seeing the distinction between behaviours and attitude as opposed to skills and knowledge as important. I also have a keen interest in explicitly embedding the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals to meet the Business School's Vision and Mission.

Approach to teaching

  1. Learning is enhanced when learners are aware of their learning process and see outcomes as relevant.
  2. Working as a group enhances learning.
  3. Learning is enhanced when self-evaluation and reflection are included in the learning process.
  4. Feedback is developmental not a means to justify a grade.
