I am a Associate Professor in the Department of Learning and Teaching Enhancement at Edinburgh Napier University.  I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA).

I lead the MSc in Blended and Online Education, and lecture on the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning, Teaching and Assessment Practice in Higher Education programme.

I have led on a number of institutional initiatives, including the Digital Support Partnership project, a cross-university strategic project to support all staff in student engagement in online learning and teaching during the academic year 2020-21 and the short-life working group on Blended Learning in 2022. I am currently engaged in internal and external work on the rapidly developing context of higher education learning, teaching and assessment in the age of generative artificial intelligence. ​

I have worked in a number of universities in the UK as a learning technologist, academic developer, lecturer and software developer. I am also an experienced theatre director and practitioner, and I like to explore creative approaches to academic development. I am an editor for the journal Research in Learning Technology​.

My research interests include the relationship between digital teaching and theory, critical digital pedagogy and open education practices.

I am open to applications for PhDs in the areas of digital education, academic practice, higher education, critical digital and AI literacy, and theories of learning and teaching. ​ ​​​​​​​
