I lead services and contribute towards supporting students with academic literacies and learning (including assessment), support faculty with curriculum design and development and collaborate with a wide range of colleagues on how learning development can address issues in attainment, retention and transition.
I have a BA (First Class), M.St. and D.Phil. from the University of Oxford. I have over ten years’ experience in modern languages teaching and admissions at the University of Oxford, where I was awarded the 2017 Students' Union Teaching Award for Outstanding Pastoral Support, nominated by my students.
I join King’s from the University of Bath’s Skills Centre where I was planning and projects lead. I won a University Covid Award for my contribution to the online transition support programme for quarantining students and secured funding to run the first ever academic and digital skills co-creator project with undergraduate students, looking explicitly at the academic literacy needs of target groups in the Access and Participation Plan.
In other roles at Bath, I led on inclusive curriculum development, with particular expertise in belonging, transition, decolonising and internationalising the curriculum, approaches to the awarding gap and designing curricula for future students. I also held positions managing PhD student experience and student support policy and service enhancement for Student Services.
Prior to Bath, I was Lecturer in Italian at St Anne’s College and Christ Church, Oxford, and Student Recruitment Officer for the University of Oxford, working with schools and colleges in the UK and North America. I co-created the university's Early Career Academic Outreach Network to facilitate PhD student engagement in working with schools.
I am also Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
