About Me

I was an academic at UMIST and Manchester Metropolitan University before my appointment at UoM. I am a Member of the Textile Institute and was made a Fellow in its centenary year as well as being a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Fashion Marketing and Management. Prior to my academic career, I initially trained and worked as a sewing machine technician. I have held positions as an industrial/ production engineer and production manager in the garment manufacturing industry, in the UK and Morocco, as well as having been a member of a retail buying team as a textile and garment technologist.
