Addysgu ac Arolygiaeth
I am the Director of Teaching & Learning for the College of Human Sciences, which hosts the disciplines of Psychology, Healthcare Sciences, Sport and Exercise Sciences, Medical Sciences, and Educational Sciences. In the College, our strategic focus is to ensure that our teaching is at the cutting edge of educational transformation and innovative support for learning. In addition to my College duties, I am the Reward & Recognition for Teaching & Learning Manager, and in this role I lead the University’s accredited Advance HE provision, enabling staff to be recognised and rewarded for citizenship to, and excellence within, teaching and learning in higher education. Finally, within the Department of Psychology, I teach Biological Psychology and Consumer Psychology at undergraduate level, and a discipline specific teacher training programme to doctoral students who teach across our programmes.
I am a neuropsychologist and I explore how our emotional experiences can influence our decision-making. My empirical expertise feeds my applied work in identifying and solving problems within businesses, and I have worked with a number of high-profile clients, such as Unilever, Aldi and Mondelez, bridging the gap between science and practice. As an expert in consumer psychology, I have contributed to BBC’s X-Ray, BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio Wales, and BBC Radio 4, with regard to shopping behaviour, and the influence of personal relationships on decision-making. I am a PI on the WEFO funded CALIN project, and my most recent focus has been on the development of multi-disciplinary interventions and training programmes which aim to enhance mental health and wellbeing within small-to-medium enterprises. I am a member of the School of Human & Behavioural Sciences’ Institute for Wellbeing Research.
