As Programme Lead for Art & Design, Alexandra leads the BA in Fine Art, and Foundation Art & Design, as well as the undergraduate programmes in Photography and Graphic Design, both of which she established in 2019. She also helped to establish the MFA in Fine Art, for which she leads the Critical Theory modules.
