I am a member of Research & Innovation Services and my role as Researcher Development and Integrity Specialist is focussed on ensuring researchers have appropriate training and resources to develop their research capacity. This includes research integrity training, delivering the researcher development objectives of the Early-Career Development Programme, and facilitating events such as the Glasgow Crucible and our Research Staff Conference.


I originally completed a PhD in Egyptology following on from a degree in Ancient History and Archaeology. I then worked as a computer programmer and analyst in the finance industry. I re-trained as a librarian in 2003 and specialised in Research Support covering open research, bibliometrics and the REF, including training and staff development activities. I became a Chartered Librarian in 2007 and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2017. Before joining the University of Glasgow in 2019 I was working in scholarly communications, specialising in library research support activities such as open access, research data management, the REF, bibliometrics, research impact and research profiles
