Profile

Biography

Following a BA in English at York I spent 20 or so years working in the public and third sectors. I then took an MA and PhD at Nottingham (my thesis was on concepts of imagination) and returned to teach at York in 2007. I have received Supervisor of the Year awards (2009, 2010, 2011), and a Vice Chancellor's Teaching Award (2014).

For more about me see the ‘Research’ and ‘Teaching’ tabs. As the Department's Undergraduate Admissions Tutor I am always pleased to hear from those interested in studying with us.

My Feedback and Advice Times ('office hours') can be found on the ‘current students’ page. If you need to talk to me and cannot make those times, please e-mail for an appointment.
