I joined LSBU in January 2020 as a Senior Lecturer in Accounting. Currently, I am a link manager for leading accountancy bodies, ACCA, AIA, CIMA, CIPFA and ICAEW. I am a Fellow of the ACCA and a Senior HEA Fellow with over 25 years of teaching experience in the higher education sector.

I have presented papers at many conferences, including the British Accounting and Finance Association, AdvanceHE, and international conferences.

I have in the past held many roles in the HE sector, including course leader, Head of Programme development and Head of the School of Accounting and Finance.

I volunteer for the Royal National Institute for the Blind, campaigning for inclusivity.
