As a part of the Strategic Partnerships and Insights team, I am working primarily to support UUKi's UK-Ukraine Twinning Scheme and more broadly across our external grants, partnerships and contracts.
I joined UUKi from the University of Auckland, where I led the Student Development and Engagement team in the Faculty of Arts. I have worked across a range of roles in the higher education sector in recruitment, widening participation, student engagement and research, in England, Canada, and New Zealand. I studied History and Sociology at University, most recently as a Rotary International Global Grant Scholar in Peace and Conflict Resolution, researching how we teach ‘difficult histories’ at tertiary level, in settler-colonial contexts.
I firmly believe the higher education sector has a powerful role to play in creating positive change in the world, and I am excited to work within an organisation that leads this change at a sector-wide-level.
