Current positions

Lecturer in Performance


Prior to joining the University of Salford as a Lecturer in Performance in February 2016, I worked in H.E. in education studies on the post compulsory Performing Arts PGCE course and then, latterly, on the generic, levels 6 and 7 post-compulsory PGCE pathways.

I also have over twenty five years of practitioner-based, industry knowledge and experience, having worked as a professional actor (as Ian Angus Wilkie) and, latterly, as a lecturer in theatre, drama and performance.  I also teach MA performance students on critically reflective writing at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in the role of Associate Lecturer.

My own teaching, research and knowledge exchange activities include the learning and teaching of undergraduate BA performance students; editorship of the journal Comedy Studies; PhD and PaR supervision; and on-going curriculum development in face-to-face and online contexts.
