Biography

I helped to establish the University’s Lab for Academic Culture in late 2020, where I am now the strategic workstream lead for research culture, working on actions to progress support for careers, recognition of contributions, research integrity and the future of research assessment. I co-convene the University's Research Culture and Careers Group.  

Prior to this, I established and led the the University's Researcher Development team to deliver professional and career development opportunities for ~5,000 research students and staff across the Institution. Over a period of 13 years of developing researcher talent and leadership capacity, I looked for ways to have a positive impact on research culture – at the University of Glasgow and the wider sector - through training and development, communications, policy, conversations or other interventions. I was the key point of contact for the University's HR Excellence in Research Award, established the Glasgow Crucible, led a University-wide review of safeguarding researchers in fieldwork and was part of the UK writing group for the 2019 revision of the Researcher Development Concordat.  

 

Background

I am a Chartered Manager with a PhD in Chemistry, and qualifications in coaching and mentoring (ILM) and learning and development (CIPD). I previously worked on Educational Projects for the Royal Society of Chemistry, moving to the University of Glasgow in 2008. I am a qualified cycling coach and mountain bike leader and have a strong interest in promoting inclusion - in cycling and the outdoors, as well as in academia.
