Associate Professor

Biography

I am currently working as a Head of Global Online at the Business School of Edinburgh Napier University. I was promoted to this position from the role of School Academic Lead for Online to Deputy Head of Global Online and then to Head of Global Online.

My current role is to drive L&T innovation within online learning provisions by coordinating the pedagogical development with academics, learning technologists and external partners. All my work and innovations in L&T are underpinned by social constructivist pedagogy and always focused on the student experience.

I am also an Associate Professor in Accountancy and Finance since 2015. I completed my PhD in 2017 from the School of Governance at University of Durham.
