I am Head of Academic Programs at Trinity College, where I manage the Residential College’s tutorial and visiting scholar’s programs. I am an award-winning educator at the University of Melbourne where my teaching focuses on research and communication skills. 

I am passionate about helping students and researchers transition into the highest levels of achievement through one-to-one and group teaching, and online engagement. I have a wider interest in university policy and governance.   

My research focuses on the relationship between poetry and music; on 20th-century poetries; and, increasingly, on student learning and attainment.

I continue to work in doctoral development including as an external supervisor for doctoral candidates at the School of Culture and Communication, the University of Melbourne.
