Biography

My main tasks are to enhance and facilitate the public engagement (PE) activities at the Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology. Our PE activities aim to increase the accessibility and transparency of our research, and to bring it to new audiences and key stakeholders. We work with other organisations, partners and collaborators to increase opportunities for engagement, and to embed and share best practice.

I have a background in research (both biological and social), and previously worked in corporate communications and corporate social responsibility.
