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.
