Before returning to education as a mature student, I worked in the Public Sector for 15 years.
On completing my PhD in 2005 I joined Aston Business School Research Centre for Higher Education and Learning Management as a Research / Teaching Fellow. I remained part of HELM until September 2008. During this period I also worked as an Independent Researcher for the Institute of Voluntary Action Research in London. From September 2008 until December 2010, I was employed as a Senior Research Fellow in the Centre of Learning Innovation & Professional Practice at Aston. During this time I gained a keen interest in STEM Education Research in general – and in Engineering Education in particular.
In December 2010 the opportunity arose for me to follow my research interests and move to the School of Engineering & Applied Science to work as a Social Research Fellow.
