Student education

I teach across modules ranging from Operating Systems, Software Engineering and Machine Learning.

As School Assessment Lead, I’m responsible for the leadership, development and management of the assessment policy and practices within the School and in promoting an inclusive approach to student education.

A significant part of my role is to support the school on it’s Curriculum Redefined journey. This is a ten year programme at Leeds to create a curriculum that gives our graduates the skills and tools they need to ciope with the challenges of the 21st century.
