I have been Deputy Vice Chancellor at the University of Westminster since October 2009. Particular responsibilities include leadership of learning and teaching and the wider student experience. I joined the University of Westminster in 2003 as Dean of the School of Social Sciences, Humanities & Languages and subsequently held roles as Provost of the Cavendish Campus and Pro Vice Chancellor.
Prior to Westminster, I was Dean of the School of Languages and Social Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University (1998-2003). I previously worked at Thames Valley University (1983-98) where I held various roles as Course Director for a large Humanities modular degree programme, Programmes Manager for the School of Creative, Social & Cultural Studies, University Modularisation Manager and UG College Pathway Manager.
Before moving into higher education I was a Modern Languages teacher in secondary education for 3 years. My doctorate, 'Towards a Cultural Analysis of Contermporary Spanish Cinema', was awarded by Anglia Polytechnic University. I hold a BA in Spanish Studies from Portsmouth Polytechnic, an MA in Romance Languages & Literatures from University of London and a PGCE from the University of York.
My teaching experience has mainly been at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, although my teaching career began in secondary education. My teaching has encompassed both Hispanic Studies (Spanish and Latin American film, Spanish language and literature) and film and visual communication.
My research interests are in Spanish cinema and cultural studies and I have published a range of articles and book chapters in publications aimed at scholars of Hispanic Studies and Film.
I am co-author of Contemporary Spanish Cinema (1998) and co-editor of Contemporary Spanish Cultural Studies (2000), both with Barry Jordan, and co-editor of European Cinema Inside-Out: Images of Self and Others in Postcolonial in European Cinema (2003) with Guido Rings.
