Rebecca is a creative and enthusiastic educator, who has a passion for enhancing the student experience and facilitating the development of students’ understanding of the future world of work.

Research projects

Rebecca is currently undertaking an EdD, the subject of which is “Scholarship, is it a thing?” This research uses Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to develop an understanding of the lived experiences of first-year business undergraduates and how they make sense of the academic demands and faculty expectations of university study.

Rebecca delivers Strategic Human Resource Management content which helps students develop their understanding of the strategic approaches organisations can take concerning the management of people and the potential impact of different HR policies and practices.


She also delivers Employee Relations & Employment Law that examines the mechanics of the employment relationship by exploring employee well-being, performance and reward, and the management of both employee relations and employment law in practice.


She particularly enjoys encouraging students to consider emergent, topical themes and how they influence HR leaders’ decisions through the application of theory to practice.
