I lead the University's Researcher Development team to deliver professional and career development opportunities for researchers in all four Colleges. This includes directing an annual programme of over 250 events, training programmes, competitions and other initiatives for PGRs, Postdocs, Supervisors and ECDP participants, to support talent development and enhance the staff and student experience.
I am the key point of contact for the University's HR Excellence in Research Award and was part of the national writing group for the 2019 revision of the Researcher Development Concordat. I represent the University on several national groups or forums to share practice and advance policy relating to researcher development, entrepreneurship and research integrity. I am the Convenor for the Universities Scotland Researcher Development and Training Committee and sit on the University's Gender Equality Steering Group.
