I’m a lecturer, author and consultant in English language and academic writing. I also work in the areas of teaching methodology and practice, student learning and course design.
I’ve been teaching and managing in higher education for over twenty years and set up one of the first writing centres in a UK university. I have held the positions of Head of Department, Principal Lecturer in Learning and Teaching, and Chair of the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes. I currently work at the University of Leeds UK.
In my books I aim to help students understand the 'how’ and ‘why’ of writing at university.
I want to help them develop the confidence to produce successful pieces of work and to express their ideas clearly and powerfully as they progress in their field.
