Responsibilities within the University

As a developer for educational projects at Queen's University Belfast's Centre for Educational Development, my role involves supporting, developing, implementing, and evaluating learning and teaching projects under the Education, Skills, and Student Experience workstream of Strategy 2030. My primary focus is on Programme Management Framework and Programme Development. Before joining the team, I spent five years working at Queen's Business School, managing the international student journey.

External Recognition

I am an experienced examiner and assessment designer for a number of national and international examination boards. I am also a certified Test Centre Manager for high-stakes testing. In addition to my work in assessment, I have also been involved in curriculum development. I was part of the team responsible for designing the Grade 10-12 national curriculum for English in the Northern Emirates. 

Professional and Personal Interests

As educators, we are partners in the student's journey. We help them explore and deepen their interests by instilling a sense of self-belief, trust, and empowerment. We do this by providing them with opportunities to take risks, learn from their mistakes, and celebrate their successes. Education is more than just imparting knowledge. I am fascinated by how interconnected education strands and skills are.
