Currently senior lecturer at the Auckland Institute of Studies. I believe that by being part of a Higher Education Institution, I have a crucial role to play in the holistic development and progression of students. Higher education learning, of which I am a facilitator, consists of a multifaceted mixture of knowledge, understanding and skills. It also embodies values, attitudes and behaviour that form part of a student’s academic performance. I am passionate about education as I believe that through education and research we can make a positive contribution to solving some of the ever-increasing global challenges that we face.
