About

Until quite recently I was an Enterprise Reader in Environmental Management in the Faulty of Sciences at Staffordshire University UK. I worked there for over 20 years. By profession, a Chartered Chemist, a Chartered Environmentalist, a Chartered Water and Environmental Manager and a Chartered Scientist, I have a PhD work elucidating aspects of organophosphorus chemistry kinetics. I taught environmental management and sustainability at Staffordshire University and I also act as an evaluator for the European Commission for their IT-educational lifelong learning project proposals. During my time at Staffordshire University, I developed wide experience of distance and on-campus learning and teaching, in-company training, consultancy, applied research and marketing/project/people management. I delivered staff development workshops in e-learning, independent learning and enterprise/entrepreneurship on behalf of the Higher Education Academy at universities throughout the UK. I am also an active member of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management and act as a professional reviewer for membership applicants and as a university award accreditor for them. Prior to working at the University, I had fifteen years scientific and managerial experience in the U.K. water industry – managing laboratories and working in the industrial effluent regulation and wastewater treatment operations sectors. I have consultancy and training experience in environmental management systems implementation, sustainable business development, solid/liquid waste treatment practice/technology and recycling technologies. I also have extensive experience of the management, preparation and delivery of both on-campus and distance/distributed/ e-learning and training in the above areas, as well as having developed and delivered many in-company training programmes covering water/wastewater treatment technologies and sustainable business strategies.
