I have been a qualified archivist and records manager for nearly 20 years, previously working mainly in the Banking sector before joining the University in 2005. After graduating from UEA with a BA in French, Comparative Literature and Philosophy, I studied Archives and Records Administration at the University of Bangor. I also have a Master's degree in Historical Research from Birkbeck College London.
In November 2014 I was awarded a PhD in Information Studies (Archival Studies) from UCL; my thesis is titled: Exploring archival value: an axiological approach.
I am a member of the ICA, AIM25 and the British Records Association. My interests include the application of archival theory to practice, particularly in the area of appraisal.
I have edited the University History Project series of publications and authored volume 5 in the series: Educating for Professional Life: Twenty-five Years of the University of Westminster (London: University of Westminster, 2017).
I am also an Associate Staff member at the University of Dundee, as a dissertation supervisor and marker on the MLitt/MSc in Archives and Records Management.
