About me

Originally from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, I have been at Stirling since 2007. I hold a BA (Hons) in Economics from the University of Stirling, a MSc Economics from the University of Edinburgh, and I obtained my PhD from the University of Stirling in 2018. My postgraduate studies were supported by an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) 1+3 studentship, awarded through open competition.

I have held my current post of lecturer since August 2017, in addition to being a module coordinator (2015-17), and a teaching assistant (2013-17) until my full time appointment. My teaching responsibilities include advanced and intermediate macroeconomics at the undergraduate level, and delivering the core micro and macro modules on the MSc Economics for Business & Policy. I am currently leading the adoption of the CORE project of learning and teaching in Economics across the division, from undergraduate to postgraduate.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), and I hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (PGCert LTHE).

In Spring 2019 I was awarded a Teaching Impact Award and a RATE Excellence in Teaching award. I passionately believe in, practice, and research the role of pedagogy in the learning of Higher Education, particularly in the field of Economics.
