I joined DELC as a Senior Teaching Associate in Spanish in 2011. Prior to this I worked as a Language Assistant and Part-time Lecturer in Spanish at Manchester Metropolitan University (1991-1995), and as a Lecturer in Spanish and Spanish Subject Leader at Bournemouth University, where I developed the BA Spanish strand of the BA Modern Languages, validated by HEFCE (1995-1998). I was a Lecturer (1998-2004) and Senior Lecturer (2004-2008) at Northumbria University, where I coordinated the Spanish University-Wide Unilang and Unilang Plus programmes and co-supervised the Postgraduate Programme in Hispanic Studies. Following my departure from Northumbria, I held a fixed-term position as a Teaching Fellow in Spanish at the University of Exeter (2009-2010).
