I joined City in 2018 as a visiting lecturer teaching the module 'Child and Adolescent Literature, Literacy, and Library Services'. I am a qualified teacher and librarian, and have worked in both academic and school libraries. I am in the final stages of a PhD in Education and Children's Literature at the University of Cambridge.
