My first postdoctoral position was in the Consumer Sciences Department of the Institute of Food Research at Reading. I returned to Plymouth as a Lecturer in 1995.

I spearheaded a project to supply first year undergraduate psychology students with ebook copies of their core reading. Those entering the psychology programme in 2011 were given access to 12 downloadable texts that comprised the main recommended reading for all of their core lectures. In 2012 this project was extended to cover core second year psychology modules, and to the first year of five other programmes in the Faculty of Science and Technology. In 2014 it was further extended to cover approximately new 7,000 students across the university.
