Professional Summary Description: "I have over 10 years experience in external quality assurance, with a particular focus on internationalization, transnational education, and cross-border cooperation in quality assurance.
I have led QAA¡¯s international engagement and TNE review work over a number of years, engaging widely with international higher education and quality assurance systems and developments.
In particular I have played a leading role in international developments in the quality assurance of TNE and inter-agency cooperation, including for example leading the drafting of the Toolkit for QA agencies: cooperation in cross-border higher education, the UK-Beijing Statement of cooperation in the quality assurance of Sino-UK TNE, the development of the Quality Beyond Boundaries Group, as well as being involved in the initial phases of the Cross-Border Quality Assurance Network (CBQAN). I have developed innovative ways for accreditation agencies to carry out joint review activity.
I have been proactively engaging with the APQN network over the years, and the Asia-Pacific region, establishing excellent working relationships and gaining sound understanding of QA systems and challenges in many APQN countries.
Joining UK NARIC as Head of Quality Benchmarking Services I am working to develop services to education providers (at all levels) and regulators that would help reassure stakeholders about the quality of cross-border provision and facilitate the recognition of cross-border qualifications.
Prior to working for the QAA and UK NARIC, I have held research and lecturing positions in the UK, Ireland, and Italy. I have a PhD in Political Theory/Cultural studies, an MA in Human Rights, an MSc in Social Research Methods, and a BA in Philosophy"
