Strategic Research Officer
I report to the Head of Department and the Associate Head of Department for Research and am line-managed by the Head of Administration and Finance. My main role is the co-ordination of funding applications that are designated strategic by the Senior Management Team. Alongside Valerie West, I host a weekly grant surgery where we provide advice to members of the department on their grants and how to maximise success.
I spent over 20 years working for major grant funders, including the Wellcome Trust and Breast Cancer Now. I also worked at the Saïd Business School before joining the Department in March 2018. I worked on Dementias Platform UK (DPUK) before taking up my current role in January 2021
