The Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries consists of two teams, Art and Design and Media and Communications, and covers subjects across media and journalism, performance, arts and design. As Academic Dean, I lead the faculty, supporting the academic staff to engender an exciting, dynamic and relevant scholarly environment for our students that encourages curiosity and creativity. I teach photography and supervise research students in this area.
I am one of the photography team that were awarded the HEA Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence (2017) for work with students and the North East Photography Network (NEPN).
The Visualisation of the Invisible Illness ME through the Production of Contemporary Photographic Practice in Collaboration with Sufferers, Carers and Medical Researchers.
My research interests include how photographic representation impacts on society and can be used to challenge assumptions around under-represented groups. I have worked with people in different communities, creating image text works that challenge the viewer both in terms of photography and the subject. Recent works consider the ways in which Alzheimer's Disease links with photography through memory, and considers a visual exploration of experiencing Alzheimer’s. In collaboration with Dr Carol McKay I have written about photography both in terms of as a teaching and learning tool and exploring photography and its role in the networked world.
I lead the University of Sunderland element of the cross-university AHRC funded Creative Fuse North East project.
