Research overview

As a Learning Developer, I am particularly interested in innovative forms of teaching and inclusivity. 

As an Historian, my research area focuses on material culture and the history of emotions in seventeenth-century England.


I have a signficant amount of experience researching and teaching History, and have now moved into Learning Development. I currently teach in the management school, provide student academic writing support and manage The Academic Writing Zone in the Management School at Lancaster.

I continue to teach and research History. I was also a Teaching Fellow in History at the University of Manchester.
