With over 20 years of experience designing for education, my background in publishing for both UK and international markets has focussed on a wide range of media including book production, teaching materials, conference promotion, design/technical illustration and liaison with international partners. As a Graphic Designer I work closely with other staff members within the school on a wide variety of work.
I support the dissemination of research outputs through the Water Engineering Development Centre (WEDC) publishing programme, both as digital assets and printed copy, and I am closely involved with the management and production of WEDC International Conference papers and associated artwork.
I also host and manage the WEDC and WaterWiser webinar series, making access to our visiting presenters available to students working remotely. My work also covers the production and development of distance learning materials; taught course materials; promotional literature; and the design and production of exhibition materials and display items. I also update content for the school website and have an NVQ in Business and Administration.
In addition to working in the school of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering, I also work two days per week in the studio at Creative and Print Services within the University.
I have an interest in early modern and social history and regularly participate in online courses, lectures and exhibitions connected to this subject area.
I began working at Loughborough University in 2000 as a Graphic Designer in the Water, Engineering and Development Centre and more recently for the wider school.
I extended my part time hours by taking on a further role with the Engineering Subject Centre (Higher Education Academy) and later with the Centre for Engineering and Design Education. With the closure of the centre I moved to a part-time role in the studio at Creative and Print Services.
Prior to working at the university I worked for the Education Department at Leicestershire County Council.
