I studied Archaeology and Medieval History at the University of Sheffield and stayed on for my MA in European Historical Archaeology. I came to York to do a PhD in the Centre for Medieval Studies, focussing on Anglo-Saxon approaches to the remembrance of the dead. I have worked as a lecturer in medieval archaeology at Cardiff University and as editor of the journal Internet Archaeology.
My first administrative post at the University of York was in the Research Policy Office, working on the RAE 2008 submission. Since then, I have held three posts in the Academic Support Office: administrator/editor to the Learning and Teaching Forum, Academic Integrity Project Officer and Quality Support Officer.
More recently I have provided interim cover as the Assistant Registrar: Student Progress and Acting Deputy Academic Registrar and Director of Student Services.
I provide support to Wayne Campbell, the University's Academic Registrar, across a range of his responsibilties. In particular this involves carrying out research, managing projects and producing documents such as resources and drafting policies. I work closely with senior managers and other staff across Student and Academic Services.
