I am the Research and Innovation Development Manager for Culture, working closely with Dr James Stark, the Director of the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute. My focus is on large, strategic, and interdisciplinary research development and bid development. I am also the lead contact for the AHRC within Research and Innovation Services. I coordinate the AHRC Strategy Group, and contribute to the AHRC training alongside the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute.
Prior to my role at Leeds, I was in impact-focused roles at the universities of York and Sheffield. I have substantive experience in REF2014, impact acceleration accounts, partnership building, knowledge exchange and evaluating impact. Until 2017, I was the ARMA Impact Special Interest Group champion for three years.
