I am a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Liverpool. I am an ambitious T&S educator who is committed to innovative pedagogy and working towards positive change.
My trajectory into academia has been non-traditional and I am very keen to advocate for the value of lived experience and the need to widen participation.
I love meeting people working in similar areas or approaching teaching from a similar perspective. Please contact me if you want to talk about approaches or potential collaborations.
I am committed to developing innovative pedagogy influenced by my own needs as a Dyslexic teacher. I will keep a log of my pedagogical outputs below.
