Tegwen is a lecturer in the School of Management with a focus on International Standards and Operations Management. She is Deputy Programme Director for MSc Management (and pathways) and oversees the coordination of independent learning MSc modules: MSc Dissertation and MSc Business Projects.
She has a particular interest in innovation and research, especially when informed by nature hence her enthusiasm for the field of biomimetics. She has been involved in an eclectic range of prototype development, typically deriving from a translation of nature’s millions of years of evolutionary test lab results (including in the life science sector). This work has been very much multifaceted in areas such as transparent armour and water harvesting having stemmed from R&D (encompassing discovery, evaluation, and assessment of ideas into product innovation and design) at the early stages right through to company commercialisation. She has been involved in formulating, mapping out, and costing the design of processes required when taking products to market, in particular game-changing solutions.
Tegwen has successfully combined academic interests in both the sciences and management disciplines. For instance, she has carried out research in the field of oncology along with having many years experience in applied project management.
