During my time in the University, I have worked in school-based and central Digital Education roles, primarily in or working closely with schools in the College of Biomedical and Life Sciences before moving into my current role.

I’m interested in the appropriate use, educational effectiveness, and scalability of immersive environments for teaching and assessment.  A key project in this area is the Wales Virtual Hospital, which is a cross-Wales platform that puts educators at the centre of immersive content development.
