A high-profile Queen's University academic is to step down from his senior management role as pro vice-chancellor for planning and public engagement.

Educationalist, Professor Tony Gallagher, revealed his decision on social media.

In his posts on Twitter and Facebook, he said he was returning to his roots.

"I have decided to step down and focus on research and teaching in the School of Education #backtoroots," he tweeted.

Prof Gallagher joined Queen's as a lecturer in education in 1992 and was later appointed to a readership in 1995 and a chair in 1999. In 2005, he was appointed head of the School of Education, becoming a pro vice-chancellor of the University in 2010.
