I am really lucky - I love marketing and I love teaching!

I see my role as an educator being to generate the same levels of excitement and interest in the various marketing disciplines that I feel to my students. Using an interactive and collaborative learning approach in both face-to-face and online environments, I strive to create a challenging yet enjoyable learning environment to engage with and motivate students to achieve their every success.

My research, which has been published in internationally ranked, peer-reviewed journals, focuses on student engagement, student support and meeting employer needs and expectations. This allows me to cater to a diverse student cohort while utilising a variety of teaching methodologies.

I use peer review, student feedback and SETU evaluations to enhance my teaching and enable critical reflection upon and evolution of my methods, achieving the highest SETU results within the School of Management and Marketing in T2 2009 and T1 2010.
