Lecturer

Ashleigh Filtness

I am a lecturer in Loughborough Design School and also completed my PhD (2011) and undergraduate BSc Human Biology degree (2007) here at Loughborough.

Outside of work, I’m a wife and mum. My little girl is 18 months old. Most of my non-work time is spent being a family with them. My main hobby is hot air ballooning. This is a sport I started when I was an undergraduate by joining LSU Hot Air Balloon Team. I regularly fly with friends who I met through the University team.

International Women’s Day is a celebration and recognition of the achievements of all women, while raising awareness of ongoing struggles women face around the world and promoting the right to equality.
