Profile summary

After completing my BSc in Forensic investigation at Canterbury Christ Church University in 2015, I have continued as a part-time PhD student and Lecturer in Forensic Investigation. I have previously worked as a science teacher in secondary education since completing my PGCE at Christ Church in 1997. Prior to teaching I completed my BSc in Analytical Chemistry and Toxicology at the University of Hull.

I currently lead the Forenisic Investigation foundation year, teaching and supporting student in forensic investigation and sciences. I have also led other forensic science/chemistry based modules for Levels 4, 5 and 6.

Research and knowledge exchange

I am working in conjunction with the Research team at Kent Fire & Rescue to analyse electrical fire data from the Incident Recording System using GIS (geographical information systems) mapping techniques. The purpose of my research is to identify which electrical appliances most commonly cause fires and investigate the spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal dynamics in electrical fire incidents. This information can then be used to effectively target fire prevention education at specific appliances and demographics within the region.

Teaching and subject expertise

I am a Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and an Associate Member of the Chartered College of Teaching.
