Senior Teaching Fellow (attached to UCL Institute of Education)
* Having researched and taught in several departments at UCL and other universities, I have been in the UCL Arena Centre for Research-based Education (formerly CALT) since 2003. I work particularly with the UCL Institute of Education after several years of working with BEAMS (Faculties of Engineering, Maths and Physical Sciences and the Bartlett School of Architecture) to explore teaching and learning of all kinds.

With a background in ancient languages, history, history of religion and medicine, I moved into interdisciplinarity and higher education as my fields of study and teaching, which shows in my predominantly reflexive approach, with an emphasis on supporting disciplinary integrity. My work in the Arena Centre has also seen me lead MAs in Education and Academic Practice before moving to a more strategic role supporting teaching and learning across UCL.

I continue to teach on interdisciplinary courses such as the postgraduate trans-UCL module Investigating Research and a graduate course on Interdisciplinary Studies of Evidence, amongst others; and I publish on interdisciplinary themes.
