Personal profile


As the Associate Dean (Global Engagement & Education Partnerships) for the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries at the University of Portsmouth, I lead, develop and drive our global engagement strategies and operational plans to build on current successes by identifying new opportunities for strategic developments including; international recruitment and exchange, international student experience, transnational education arrangements and global research and innovation initiatives.

Research Interests

In October 2020 I commenced a Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD) taught at the University of Portsmouth School of Education and Sociology. My research focuses on teaching and learning in Architectural Education, specifically the tutor training of architect-educators.

Teaching Responsibilities

I am a Registered Architect (ARB, RIBA, International Associate AIA) and I have taught in architectural education since 2004.  In 2021, I was awarded Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).  In my role as an academic, I have taught as a part-time, pro-rata and full-time Studio Tutor, I have led undergraduate and postgraduate design studios and I have been a Module Coordinator, Year Coordinator and a Course Leader at the University of Portsmouth School of Architecture.   

As part of my global engagement role, I am the Programme Coordinator for 3 x University of Portsmouth Undergraduate Transnational Education (TNE) Top-up Degree Courses (Fashion & Textile Design, Graphic Design and Interior Architecture & Design), with our Collaborative Partner Caritas Institute of Higher Education (CIHE) in Hong Kong (HK). This role provides me with the opportunity to collaborate on projects within the rich context of HK, working in partnership with CIHE staff and students.
