I've worked for the OU since 2010, teaching DD309, DB 125 and social science modules such as DD103. Two years ago I took a career break and did an MSc in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management at York University, doing a dissertation that modelled air pollution in China's megacities. I live in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and my main interest is travelling - I've visited Alaska, Oregon and Hong Kong [ my favourite place!] in recent years. I have recently been appointed as Staff Tutor in Economics.
