About

I am Senior Lecturer for the University's MA Publishing.
I am interested in all aspects of Publishing as an academic discipline.
I would be happy to talk to staff or students about any aspect of publishing, particularly around issues of academic publishing.

Professional interests

I worked in publishing for over 20 years, as a Commissioning Editor and then a Publishing Director, in both London and New York. Most recently I was Publishing Director at Bloomsbury Academic in London.
