Assistive Technology Trainer
I joined the D&A team after graduating with an MA in Design, having previously completed an Illustration and Design BA. As a designer, I have a keen interest in accessibility and legibility in design, both print and digital. I am fascinated by exploring the benefits of different learning styles and techniques and developing strategies to suit individual learning requirements.
My academic specialism is in the arts, however I believe that education in general is transformative and I am an enthusiastic supporter of social mobility, access to learning and equal opportunity for all, regardless of background, skill or ability. Understanding that differences are not deficits and that all voices deserve to be heard and recognised is key to my personal philosophy.
Creativity, research and open mindedness are vitally important to me and in my spare time I am most often found experimenting with ink and old printing equipment or drawing outdoors. I also listen to, compose and play music and am currently amassing an impressive collection of woolly jumpers and fountain pens!
