LMU School of Art Architecture and Design

Senior Research Fellowship, Leeds Metropolitan University School of Art, Architecture and Design, (1999 to 2001)


Among my research activities in this post was an AHRB-funded research exchange secondment to the Ashmolean Museum to research images of animals in the early modern period with Dr Arthur MacGregor. Working across all three disciplines of the School, I was also able to give advanced tutorial supervision of students’ higher degrees, specialist lecturing on visual arts, graphic design and typography, public art in architecture, and art-science collaborations. I shared this two year fellowship part-time with artist Jaki Irvine, and our work, including international exhibitions, was a major contribution to the School’s submission to the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise.
