Postgraduate Academic Assistant

After studying at the University of Sunderland for four years, I am currently undertaking a range of assistant lecturing duties in Tourism, Hospitality and Events as well as studying part-time for my PhD.

I have a First Class degree in BA (Hons) Events Management and a Distinction in MSc Tourism and Events.

Being the youngest member of the department allows me to easily develop strong relationships with students, ensuring the best possible university experience and highest possible results.

I have strong level of knowledge and understanding of the events industry to compliment my studies, as well as valuable experience of planning and organising a variety of events and promotional activities.


Teaching and supervision

I currently teach on:

I am module leader on the following modules:
  • TLH117 Fundamentals Of Events
  • TLH107 Impacts Of Festivals And Events

Research

My PhD explores the extent to which wellbeing festivals in the UK influence and impact on attendee wellbeing.

Currently, wellbeing festivals in the UK are promoting elements that affect an overall positive existence view including being emotionally, spiritually, socially and mentally grounded, and are more focused toward positively existing rather than improving physical health and wellness. However, short-term and long-term impacts of these festivals are yet to be explored. If these impacts were explored, this would contribute to various research gaps in literature as well reducing the UK healthcare burden.
