As Training and Education Manager, I support staff affiliated to the NIHR Oxford BRC to improve their research and leadership skills and support their academic career development. This includes doctors, nurses, allied health professional and research scientists.
I am part of the core Oxford BRC team and I’m based at the John Radcliffe Hospital. I work closely with Professor Sarah Rowland-Jones (Oxford BRC Academic Career Development lead), Professor Helen Walthall (OUH Director of Nursing and Midwifery Research) and Dr Louise Strickland (OUH Deputy Director Nursing and Midwifery Research OUH).
After studying for a degree in biological sciences at UCL, I did a DPhil in embryology at Oxford University and a post-doc at the National Institute for Medical ResearchMill Hill. I am also a qualified teacher and lecturer and have worked as a project manager on several government-funded educational initiatives.
