I have been supporting the establishment of the Neurodegeneration Imaging Group in the College of Medicine and Health since March 2020. In April 2021 I joined the group as Programme Manager and the Mireille Gillings Neuroimaging Centre as Centre Manager.

I joined the Medical School in 2012 as a Special Projects Officer at the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health and Care South West Peninsula (PenCLAHRC). From 2014 I was the Engagement, Research Information and Communications Manager at PenCLAHRC, which was redesignated as the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) South West Peninsula (PenARC) in October 2019.

Previously I have worked for the NIHR Evaluations, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre (NETSCC) as a Senior Research Fellow in the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme.

I have a PhD from the University of Southampton in Biological Anthropology, completed in 2009.
