Background

As Head of the Knowledge Exchange and Impact team, I have a hybrid role providing leadership and coordination on research impact and public engagement across the University, with a closer focus on impact development in the arts, humanities and social sciences.  I am a social scientist by background, and have experience from engaging with external stakeholders as an academic researcher, as well as working in third sector drawing on research in campaign and advocacy work. 

I lead the Knowledge Exchange and Impact team, promoting collaboration and engagement between academia and stakeholders in private, public and thirds sector, aiming to release the benefits research can bring to society.
