Dean of Faculty of Business and Management 

Roger’s academic career progression reflects the development of the University itself, having joined Trinity College as a lecturer in the Theatre Studies department in June 1993. In 2002, he became Head of School of Theatre and Performance, initiating a fully-practice based curriculum within the new BA Acting programme.

In 2007, Roger was seconded to the Senior Management Team, leading on the relationship between research, professional practice, learning and teaching for the, subsequently, successful application for teaching degree awarding powers. In 2009, a second secondment to the Quality Assurance Unit focussed on embedding the new regulatory framework for UWTSD across Carmarthen and Lampeter. In 2010 he became Assistant Dean and in 2011 Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Studies, at various points leading on Learning and Teaching, International Education and Widening Access. Following merger with Swansea Metropolitan University, Roger now heads the Faculty of Business and Management and is the operational lead for FE/HE progression.

In a previous career, Roger worked for 12 years as a freelance theatre designer, director and stage manager before returning to Higher Education as a lecturer in theatre design at the Welsh College of Music and Drama.
