About Me

Having initially trained and worked as a sewing machine technician, I have held positions as an industrial 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.
I have been both student and lecturer at UMIST and Manchester Metropolitan University, and I am proud to have returned to The University of Manchester where I am currently a Reader in Apparel Engineering. As my interests developed towards education, I studied for a post-graduate certificate in education focusing on further, adult and higher education.
As an experienced educator, I have been recognized as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. As a Chartered Member of the Textile Institute, I was made a Fellow in its centenary year. I am Editor of the Journal of Fashion Marketing and Management, an academic and professional journal from the Emerald Management Portfolio.
