  • Oslo in Oxford Exchange Scheme Co-ordinator
  • Research Administrator

I am the Oslo in Oxford Exchange Scheme Coordinator and linked with the Mindlock Project, which is a research group within the Oxford Mindfulness Centre (PI Professor Willem Kuyken) and Centre for Suicide Research (PI Professor Keith Hawton).

In my role as the Oslo in Oxford Exchange Scheme Coordinator I oversee and coordinate all aspects of a student’s visit which includes their selection, in collaboration with the coordinator in Oslo and provide students with pastoral care whilst her in Oxford.  I organise their academic supervision and coordinate their participation in mindfulness groups.

I also coordinate the activities undertaken by our Oxford teaching team in preparation for their visits to the Department of Psychology in Oslo, where they offer teaching to support doctoral or clinical training as well as lectures offering research updates and developments within the field of experimental psychopathology. 

I have now been at the Department of Psychiatry and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust since June 2009.  My previous role was as a Research Project Administrator and Information Coordinator in the Social Psychiatry Group in which I provided support to researchers on a number of projects and trials, designing and managing bespoke research databases.  I am also a qualified IT teacher, previously teaching at Abingdon and Witney College and  IT Services at the University of Oxford,

I work for some of my week as the Case Record Interactive Search (CRIS) Coordinator at the Research and Development Department, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust where I provide support to clinicians and researchers in the use of this system which pseudonymises Electronic Health Records (EHR), to be interrogated for research, audit and service evaluation purposes.
