Academic Development Advisor in the Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD)  
Research Student in the School of Education  


Specialised in creative and critical education with a specific interest in poetry teaching and learning (in secondary schools).

Language and poetry has interested me all my life, and I write poems and song lyrics as a hobby. It intrigued me to see so many students who were not keen on poetry teaching and learning; this combined with a fascination with critical pedagogy, social semiotics and creativity eventually led to an idea for a PhD thesis.

My love for education extends to teaching in practice too, which has led me to work with DCAD on the academic development team. I am very excited to be a part of this team and to continue my pedagogical journey. 

Other passions: Music and horsewomanship
