I joined the University of Edinburgh as a Research Technician in the Neurobiology Division of the Roslin Institute, under the supervision of professor Nora Hunter, in 2008. I continued in this post until March 2014 when I joined the Easter Bush Campus Health and Safety Team.

I currently work as Biological and Laboratory Health and Safety support, supervised by the campus Health and Safety manager.
