I am a University Teacher in Professional Skills within the Department of Mechanical Engineering here at the University of Sheffield. Originally from Lithuania, I moved to the UK in 2008 and received my BEng in Engineering and Management from the University of Bradford in 2011, and a PhD in acoustics from the University of Sheffield in 2015.

After completing my PhD, I worked in secondary education and in pedagogical research, which involved working on projects with the Institute of Physics and UCL. I rejoined the department in 2019 as a postdoc, working on fibre-optic sensing systems, and became a university teacher in 2021.

As well as leading modules focusing on design and professional skills, I am also one of the Admissions Tutors for the department, and am also the 3rd Year Tutor.

Research interests

Prior to getting involved in pedagogical research, my area of research interest was acoustics. This included studying complex intensity distribution in waveguides with varying inhomogeneities, and exploring sustainable sound-absorbing materials. I also closely worked with an industrial partner, nuron ltd., on fibre-optic sensing solutions for underground pipes.

My pedagogical research interests include teamwork, professional skills in engineering, and reflective practice.
