I am the academic head of department of the Division of Tourism & Heritage at University Campus Suffolk, based in the Business School.
My previous role was Director of Public & Professional Programmes at the University of Cambridge, based in the Institute of Continuing Education (Madingley Hall), where I oversaw the part-time University awards at undergraduate and postgraduate level, Master of Studies courses, non-credit bearing public programmes (including the extensive Weekend Programme), and bespoke professional studies courses.
Prior to that, I worked at Glasgow Caledonian University for 10 years, latterly in the joint role as Head of the Department of Management and Director of Business School Postgraduate Programmes.
I originally trained as an archaeologist at Edinburgh University, and completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge investigating strategic management within heritage organisations.
I have ongoing professional links with various heritage organisations, and continue to research into management of the historic environment and public engagement with heritage.
