Teaching and Learning
My main research interest is in pedagogy, in particular how new technology can enhance teaching and learning. With my commercial background, I am keen to develop closer links with business in applied research/consultancy as well as exploring opportunities for student internships and other ways of exposing students to real-life business situations.
