Having been undertaking the role on an interim basis since August she holds an extensive amount of knowledge about the faculty as well as a wealth of experience supported by her time as Head of the Department of Psychology since 2009. Sherria joined the University in 1999 having previously worked at the University of Plymouth and the University of Surrey.
She is an invited Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and has numerous teaching awards including a National Teaching Fellowship. She was appointed as Professor of Psychology and Education in September 2016.
Speaking about her new appointment, Sherria said:
"I didn't dare hope that I would get the role of Dean, but neither could I believe that I might have to leave the Faculty of Science and the University. I am so happy and so relieved to be able to remain a member of such a great team".
Many congratulations to Sherria!
