I support the development of our research policy programme to secure a sustainable, positive and inclusive research and innovation culture in the UK. I lead on the implementation of the Concordat to Support the Careers of Researchers (Researcher Development Concordat).
Before joining UUK, I worked at the University of the Arts London to implement the Knowledge Exchange Concordat and build the university's KE portfolio. I studied English and Related Literature at The University of York where I led a visual art and performance charity to platform young artists in the North of England.
I really enjoy engaging with professionals across the research and innovation ecosystem on policy issues that can create positive change in a wide range of areas, beyond academia. It is great to work in such a friendly organisation with colleagues working on issues affecting all aspects of higher education.
